Waldemar Januszczak continues his definitive account of his all-time favourite art-form – sculpture – in this new three-part series which explores attitudes to sex, power and the cosmos. Tonight’s second programme looks at how leaders aim to leave a lasting legacy through impressive sculptures of themselves. Lenin, in reality an inconspicuous figure, was recreated in sculptures after his death as a dominant presence. Meanwhile at Mount Rushmore, four US presidents are depicted in giant sculptures carved out of a mountain.
