Beschreibung

Circa [1850]. [1850]. Good. - Letter penned in black ink filling 2 sides of a sheet of paper folded to form 4 sides, each 7 inches high by 4-3/8 inches wide. Signed "Rich Westmacott". The recipient's address is penned on the 4th side & there is a piece out of the left edge where the seal has been broken. There is also a piece out of the top corner of the 4th side, not affecting the text. Folded 3 times for mailing. The letter is addressed to a Mr. Smith at the British Museum, apparently a friend of Westmacott since he adds a postscript: "I am sorry to say Richard [probably his son] is very ill." Westmacott writes giving Smith the dates of his Royal Academy lectures and telling him that tickets are not needed to get in.Richard Westmacott was a British sculptor whose father and son were also sculptors. For a generation Westmacott was the leading official sculptor working in the British Empire. Though less well known abroad, he was regarded as among the best sculptors of the British school. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1811 and was Professor of Sculpture at the Academy from 1827 until his death. Among his most noted public commissions were his bronze Achilles in Hyde Park, his statue of the Duke of York on Carlton House Terrace and the "Progress of Civilisation" on the pediment of the British Museum.
