"Her Faithful Companion" Marble Sculpture by Holme Cardwell

About

Carved marble, signed and dated Rome 1847 Measures: 13 1/2" x 9" D x 13" H. Holme Cardwell was born in Manchester and attended London's Royal Academy Schools in 1834 on the recommendation of Sir Francis Chantrey. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1837, and would continue to do so until 1856, sending works of art back to England from abroad. In 1841 Cardwell moved to Paris andstudied there under David d'Angers (1788-1856) for about three years. From Paris he moved to Rome and remained there for some time. In 1844 a visitor to Cardwell’s studio in Rome mentioned that the artist had just arrived in the city and was engaged in a group of Greyhounds Playing which showed “a keen observation of Nature, and great power”. The article added that “he has executed but few groups, one of which, Mrs Beaumont, of Yorkshire, ordered” (Gentleman`s Magazine 1844, p. 71 cited by Ingrid Roscoe, 2009, p. 194.). Cardwell treated with much delicacy the different surfaces and details. By his skillful use of light and shade, this vivid depiction of young greyhound and the woman interacting is simply striking.
