A bust of Sir Lennox Berkeley, depicting the head and neck of the sitter, when elderly, mounted on a square wooden black-painted plinth. He is facing forward, wearing a shirt collar and necktie. The work is bronze painted plaster linked to its plinth by a bronze-painted metal support bar. The bust was sculpted following ten sittings by Sir Lennox Berkeley in his home in Warwick Avenue, Little Venice; following its exhibition at the Cheltenham Festival, Chester Music contacted the artist on 27th October 1983 asking to purchase the bust.
