07 Jan 2018 – Lichfield Cathedral

Monument to John Lonsdale Bishop Lichfield

Francis Chantry’s “Sleeping Children”

Sculpted by Francis Leggatt Chantrey 1781-1841.

A remarkable sculpture considered, rightly, to be one of Chantry’s finest.

Chantry is said to have viewed the monument to Penelope Boothby by Thomas Banks in St Oswald’s, Ashbourne, which is similar in subject and quality.

Somewhat reminiscent of Edward Onslow-Ford’s Snowdrift.

Interior of the Cathedral

Memorial to Andrew Newton

Sculpted by Richard Westmacott II 1775-1856.
