IN FOCUS: Marx’s grave
CHRISTINE LINDEY goes in search of the artist who made Marx’s grave.
Only 11 people were at Marx‘s funeral in 1883 and the first grave at Highgate was a modest one, but it quickly became a place of pilgrimage and, in 1955, the Communist Party of Great Britain set up the Marx Memorial fund.
Laurence Bradshaw (1899-1979) won the commission.
I met his widow Eileen Bradshaw, who made the following written statements by him available for this article.
