Alfred Drury studied at Oxford School of Art and at the Royal College of Art under Jules Dalou, with whom he later worked in Paris (1881-5). On his return to London he became the assistant of Edgar Boehm. The sculptor of the facade of the Victoria and Albert Museum (1908), Drury's best known work is his statue of Sir Joshua Reynolds for the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts. His son Paul, the printmaker, worked as his father's assistant (1926-31) and it was he who made this study of his father.
