Eduardo Paolozzi

Ever wondered about the story behind the woman standing in our atrium? Well, the sculpture is a depiction of French Entertainer and Activist Josephine Baker by Sculptor Eduardo Paolozzi (1924 – 2005), whose work can also be seen in the mosaic-patterned walls of Tottenham Court Road Tube station. The colossal work was commissioned by Selfridges’ then Managing Director, Vittorio Radice, who saw a link between Harry Gordon Selfridges’ pioneering spirit and Josephine Baker’s courageousness.
