Roger Bowdler, Historic England’s Director of Listing talks about the importance of listing significant works of public art from the post-war period, including the 41 sculptures newly listed for 2016 by eminent artists such as Jacob Epstein, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
An art historian by training, Roger leads the Listing Group at Historic England. This advises the government on all heritage designations, such as listed buildings, scheduled archaeological sites and protected wrecks. Roger joined Historic England (formerly English Heritage) in 1989, where he began life as an historian and a listing inspector.
