ABOUT

Willis-Good Bronze

John Willis-Good, British 1845 ~ 1879 - Considering that the British have long been regarded as a nation of animal-lovers it is somewhat surprising that comparatively little Animalier sculpture was produced in the United Kingdom. There was a demand for the new sculpture movement that had become very substantial and a highly lucrative trade that was established with the import of French bronzes into Britain. spite this there are a few examples of British Animalier sculptors who were at work in the 19th Century. Outstanding among them is the charismatic figure of John Willis Good who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1870 and 1878. Little is known about him except that he specialised in bronze and terracotta statuettes of race-horses, hunters and dogs. During the nine year period in which he exhibited at the Royal Academy he showed some sixteen statuettes of race-horses and jockeys.
