Glenkiln Sculpture Park
Glenkiln Sculpture Park is a sculpture landscape in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. It comprises six sculptures placed in a moorland setting around Glenkiln Reservoir. The sculptures are located around 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) north-west of Shawhead, and 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) west of Dumfries.
Between 1951 and 1976, local landowner Sir William Keswick (grandson of William Keswick) assembled a collection of works by August Rodin, Henry Moore, and Jacob Epstein. Keswick worked with the artists in siting their works in a natural landscape, and commissioned works.
On 13 October 2013, the BBC reported that Standing Figure had been stolen.
The sculptures are:
- Saint John the Baptist (1878) by Auguste Rodin
- Visitation (1926) by Jacob Epstein
- Standing Figure (1950) by Henry Moore
- King and Queen (1952–53) by Henry Moore
- Upright Motive No. 1: Glenkiln Cross (1955–56) by Henry Moore
- Two Piece Reclining Figure No.1 (1959) by Henry Moore
There is also a memorial to commemorate the diamond wedding of Sir William and Lady Keswick.
