Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the stunning, new interior of the Ashmolean Museum, a wall extending three levels high' illuminates' the works of one of Britain's major sculptors, Francis Chantrey (1781-1841). This book explores the pieces that comprise the Chantrey Wall and the remarkable career of an artist whose sculptures were noted for their naturalism and simplicity of style (the sculptor has been compared to Michelangelo). Chantrey sculptor produced statues of such luminaries as George Washington (housed in the Boston state house), of kings George III and IV, of William Pitt the Younger, of the Duke of Wellington, of Lord Melville and many others, including sculptures of children, perhaps his most beloved. This publication charts the progress of his art from workshop to Victorian national treasure. Chantrey's was the first monographic collection of British sculpture to become a part of a permanent museum collection in the Ashmolean. The author, who also curated the Chantrey Wall, conducted a three-year research project on Chantrey's works.
