Shop Bob Barker's bronze sculptures

Inspired by the Yorkshire mill towns that shaped his youth, Bob Barker is renowned for his gritty ‘Northern Impressionism’ style. His 'First Lesson' sculpture is the perfect gift for anyone who treasures their childhood memories. 

Bob's latest bronze work accompanies his series of limited edition prints and began with an initial, intricate sketch. Explaining the meaning behind this piece, he says: “I believe a boy’s first hero is his dad. As he grows, even if his dad hasn’t got his hand, he’s got his back. Just knowing Dad is there means you can achieve anything."

Previous sculptures include 'On Me ‘Ed, Kamerad!' and 'Match of the Day', which depicts the Christmas Day football truce of 1914.
