Maggi Hambling picked to create Mary Wollstonecraft statue

Source: The Guardian

The pioneering British artist Maggi Hambling has been chosen for a long-awaited statue commemorating the “foremother of feminism” Mary Wollstonecraft.

The Mary on the Green campaign, which has been calling for a permanent memorial to the philosopher and author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman since 2011, unanimously chose Hambling for the sculpture.

Jude Kelly, patron for the campaign and artistic director of the Southbank Centre, called Hambling, who is best known for a sculpture of Oscar Wilde in Covent Garden, “a modern legend”.

She added: “[She] is a wonderful choice to capture the spirit and strength of Wollstonecraft.”

1. Is she no longer Shelley?

Did she drop her married name after her husband's death?

9. How appropriate, since Maggi Hambling works with shells.

The Wilde sculpture is interesting.
