Kingston University - Bronze baby rescued from prison

A valuable bronze sculpture of a baby that lay forgotten in an administration block at Holloway Prison has been rediscovered by an academic. The work, Happy Baby by Dora Gordine, had not moved since it was installed in 1948. Since being tracked down by Jonathan Black, an art historian at Kingston University, it is leaving the prison to form the centrepiece of the world's first major exhibition on the artist. The event is being staged by Kingston University and Kingston Museum with the help of a £46,000 award from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
