Pierre Granche’s Canada Memorial, dedicated to the memory of Canadian soldiers who served in the two world wars, stands in London's Green Park on a site close to the Canada Gates and to Buckingham Palace.
For Granche, who died prematurely, the commission was a unique opportunity to place Canadian art before a European audience. Jocelyne Connolly tells the story of its making and meaning:
Part 1: Background to the Competition
Part 2: A message-monument and a form-monument
Part 3: Public interaction
