At the road’s end: Ada Madssen (1917-2009), sculptor

The Norwegian sculptor Ada Madssen died on Tuesday, aged 92. She was born on 9 February 1917 and was best known for her statue of Queen Maud, which was unveiled outside the Royal Palace in 1959. Four years ago a bronze copy of the statue was erected outside the Norwegian Ambassador’s residence in Queen Maud’s hometown London.
