With portraits by artists from Giacometti to Ron Mueck, Presence is a terrific gathering of people carved, cast, modelled in clay or turned to stone. The Observer’s Laura Cumming takes a look at some of the works on show

Presence: The Art of Portrait Sculpture is at the Holburne Museum, Bath, until 2 September
