Lot Essay

This figure displays many of the characteristics typical of the sculptor Humphrey Hopper (b. 1767) who exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1799 to 1834 and was awarded the Gold Medal for his 'Death of Meleager' in 1803. His most famous work is the marble monument to General Hay in St. Paul's Cathedral which was commissioned in 1814. In addition to his marble busts and statues, Hopper produced a variety of plaster and terracotta figures after the Antique which were designed to support candelabra, lamps and clocks.
