Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
Sir Thomas Brock (1847-1922), Sculptor
Mr Brock is a sculptor in the most complete sense of the term, for his work is always sculpturesque, possessing, as it does a big, broad marble or tone character. In his portrait work it might be said that there is more of the sitter than of the artist, for in this class, whether statues or busts, he does not allow his fancy to dominate him as in his ideal figures.
