(b London, 18 June 1860; d London, 21 May 1928). British sculptor. Early in his career he was one of the leading avant-garde British sculptors of his day, experimenting with unusual materials and polychrome and working in a style imbued with elements of Art Nouveau and Symbolism (Mysteriarch, 1892, Walker AG, Liverpool). Later his work became more traditional and he had a successful career with accomplished but uninspired monuments, the best known of which are Peter Pan, erected in Kensington Gardens in 1911, and the Edith Cavell memorial (1920) in St Martin's Place, London.
