Edward (Edouard) Lanteri (1848-1917), Sculptor

Sitter in 3 portraits
Artist of 6 portraits
Of French birth, Edward Lanteri trained in Paris and came to London in 1872 to work as a studio assistant to Joseph Edgar Boehm. Although a skilful carver of stone, most of his work was modelled and cast in bronze. Far removed from the classicism of his British contemporaries, the sculptural style he brought from France was particularly influential on exponents of the 'New Sculpture' in the 1880s and 1890s. From 1880, he was also an important teacher of sculpture at the South Kensington Art Schools (later the Royal College of Art) where he was Professor of Modelling from 1900 to 1910. Lanteri produced many portrait busts, statuettes and imaginative groups and followed his friend Alphonse Legros in producing cast medallions.
