The Second Website of Bob Speel

This website is intended for those interested in sculpture and related arts. It covers Victorian and Edwardian sculptors, an amount of earlier sculpture, and material on London sculpture and monuments in London churches, and sculpture in some other towns and cities in England. There is also a section on allegorical sculpture, the 'alphabet' in the list below. As ever, throughout the site, click on any picture to enlarge it in the usual way. Main sections are:

Recent additions to this site include a page on some modern figure sculpture in Birmingham, an introduction to Bradford sculpture and a page on Bradford's Victoria Square, and a page on the monuments in Bradford Cathedral, with lots of pictures. There is a page on sculpture on the Guildhall, Portsmouth, and a brief note of the Bushey War Memorial. Also small pages on the 17th Century sculptor Edward Pearce and the 18th Century sculptor Peter Scheemakers.

In the occasional series of Animal Sculpture, I have added a page on Stag and Deer sculpture.

Sculpture of the Month for April is the assemblage of statues of kings and queens on Bradford City Hall.
