Portrait sculpture has been a universal way of celebrating the individual. From the Greeks and the Romans through Renaissance and Baroque and the great 19th Century French tradition to the extraordinary freedom of sculpture in the 20th Century.
A sculptural portrait is beyond words and more than a photograph. Commissioning a portrait sculpture is a unique and satisfying process, as the sculptor Frank Dobson said, "...You go to an artist for a work of art". A person's character and life is distilled into a sculpture. It is both an object of sculpture and the result of the intuitive observation of the sitter by the sculptor.
