Lord Roberts

W. Robert Colton

Before 1915

Source: 1915 The Studio, 98, which comments, “A comparison can be made between his admirable bust of Lord Roberts and his charming marble group of a mother and child [no. 21] — in the one the rugged reality of old age has been his inspiration; in the other the subtlety of abstraction which needed no insistence upon detailed actuality to point is meaning. Yet both are entirely persuasive, and in both he has been true to his aesthetic creed.”
