BENJAMIN CRESWICK - £10.00
A monograph by Annie Creswick Dawson with Paul Dawson.
This sumptuously illustrated biography and guide to the work of the sculptor, Benjamin Creswick, is the first dedicated publication to examine seriously the life and legacy of this artist. Creswick, who rose from Sheffield knife-grinder to head of the Department of Sculpture at the Birmingham Art School, owed much to the inspiration of St George’s Museum, Walkley, and to Ruskin’s encouragement and patronage. Based on years of detailed research, Annie Creswick Dawson tells the story of her great grandfather’s successful career working in the Arts & Crafts tradition to create carvings and terra cotta sculptures, bronzes and friezes, commercial and municipal wall decorations, metalwork and so much more.
