I have a sculpture of a standing woman signed Vogel, (57cms high). We bought it from TKN auctions in June 1983. It was part of the effects of Derwent Cottage Portinscale Keswick. Included in the sale were heads of Dr Francis C Springell and of Gertrude Bertha Springell and several other standing bronze statues of a similar size to mine. The base shown for the heads is similar to the one you have for the sculpture in the portrait gallery. Do you have any information about where Vogel stayed when he came to England? I can provide photos of the statue and of the catalogue if you are interested.

What can you tell us?close

There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
