O GALO AZUL de Trafalgar Square.frente a National.“I don’t mind the blue bird,” says Nicholas Penny, the 64-year-old Director of the National Gallery, referring to the gigantic ultramarine cockerel visible through the window of his high-ceilinged corner office. More than 15 feet tall, this playful sculpture by the German artist Katharina Fritsch is the latest artwork temporarily to occupy the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, in an ongoing series of commissions by contemporary artists.

“But I’m not tremendously keen on what’s been done on the Fourth Plinth,” continues Penny, whose office is decorated with several unfashionable mezzotints that he began collecting as an undergraduate at Cambridge. “Public sculpture on a monumental scale is a very hard art form. It’s not very 20th or 21st century. Something sensational, ironic, or whimsical: all of these are inappropriate forms of public sculpture.” Why? “Because they are inherently un-monumental and un-serious.”
