Artist associated with 4 portraits
The portrait sculptor Albert Bruce-Joy was born in Dublin, and educated first on the Continent, and then at the South Kensington and Royal Academy Schools. He exhibited work at the Royal Academy from 1866. Bruce-Joy worked for four years under another Dublin-born sculptor, J.H. Foley, and when the latter died in 1874, Bruce-Joy's profile was raised by fulfilling his outstanding commissions. During his career, he produced some 150 or so portrait busts, and a number of full statues.
