Patric Park

(1811-1855), Sculptor

Artist of 2 portraits
The son and grandson of masons and statuaries in Glasgow, Patric Park was apprenticed to the mason building Hamilton Palace (built 1822-6). He studied with Thorvaldsen in Rome from 1831 until 1833, before returning to Scotland as a sculptor, where he was employed on carving at Murthly House (built 1831-8). Park became a successful and prolific portraitist in marble producing busts of artists, literary figures, politicians and the nobility. He moved to Manchester in 1852, and died after bursting a blood vessel while helping a porter at Warrington station. Park exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1836 and the Royal Society of Artists from 1839.
