Alfred Bertram Pegram

A. Bertram Pegram was a friend of my Grandfather. They were at the Royal Academy Schools together

and were together at the unveiling of Pegram's Statue above to Sir Thomas Browne in Norwich in 1905 on the 300th anniversary of Browne's birth. (see my Dorset sculpture blog of a painting in St.Peter Mancroft by Harry R Mileham; "Wist ye not".)

Here is a good picture from the Peter Nahum at the Leicester Galleries.

Here is The Welsh War Memorial in Cardiff by Mr. Alfred Bertram Pegram. Quite a substantial work!

One day Chris I will go there and take a better picture!

My brother has some small plaster copies of his work given to my Grandfather. Here is one of them. Rather a strange subject but probably very innocent. It rested on my Grandfather's desk and my Father's ever since I can remember.

More to follow do come back soon.

I have the same small plaster model of two women kissing. It is titled 'amitie' on the front, and has the sculptor's name on the back. It is tinted in pink and green. It was the first 'antique' I ever bought, aged 18, in 1975. I paid ten pounds for it. I wonder if it was ever reproduced in a larger size anywhere ...
