VOGEL, KAREL (1897–1961), Czech-English sculptor. Born in Bohemia, educated in Prague, Vogel fled to England in 1939. He gained success as a portraitist and executed a number of public commissions. He also did a series of small nudes in bronze which showed the influence of Rodin. Vogel worked at London's Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, where he was head of sculpture. His work is in important museums in London and in Prague.
