Sculpture at All Souls College, Oxford



Sculpture at All Souls College, Oxford.

Some notes and photographs.

It is my intention to put together an in depth study of portrait sculpture at All Souls sometime soon but in the meantime I am adding a couple of photographs As readers of this blog will know it is a receptacle for mostly unfinished notes and images for my parallel blog. -

It seems to have taken on a life of its own - but my intention is to try and put the information gathered here into some semblence of order - for instance I have posted on Equestrian Statue both here in England and in Europe in a fairly random fashion - it would make sense to put all these notes together in chronological order perhaps arranged by works in the U.K. and then in Europe.

The notes on the portrait busts of Isaac Newton are currently in this blog because I have not finished putting them together.
