Glenn Gould

a life sized bronze sculpture of pianist and composer Glenn Gould outside the CBC studios
1999, by Ruth Abernathy
for Jude's October Bench Series: people or things on benches


Gould was an eccentric man who did not make public appearances. He also did not like physical contact and always dressed in heavy layers of clothes and gloves.

He died exactly 33 years ago on
the 4th of October, 1982 at age 50.

That's rather a sad sculpture, especially after having read his history.
