“Mr. Toft's sympathy and close study of nature have developed in him great ability in portrait-sculpture. The robust and finely modelled Sir George Frampton (Royal Academy, 1915) and the excellently characterised bust of the Right Hon. Jesse Collings, (Royal Academy, 1914), appear among the illustrations; and among other interesting sitters may be mentioned Mr. Gladstone (an admirable bust of whom Mr. Toft executed at Hawarden Castle), George Jacob Holyoake, R. B. Cunninghame-Graham, Mrs. Cyril Maude, Sir Henry Irving, David Christie Murray, Sir William Pearce, Prof. Leschetizky, Mark Hambourg, Sir William Treloar, and Sir Charles Mark Palmer” (25-26)
