Introduction - to be enlarged upon in due course

The blogs are primarily a series of photographic essays with detailed information - individual sculptors’ biographies and up to date list of works illustrated with photographs (the authors photography if possible) and paintings and engravings.

It is important that the illustrations are good – something missing in recent works on the subject.

Brief C.V.

The blogs

Reasons for publication, the William Seward bust of Alexander Pope.
