Sculpture speaks to us in a very special way and its innate physicality enriches our lives differently from any other art form.

Stuart Lochhead Sculpture offers the best in all media from the Medieval period to the time of Rodin. Whether created by a celebrated or a little-known artist, the sculptures we handle are of the highest quality.
With an intimate knowledge of the sculpture market and dedication to thorough research, we pursue the acquisition and sale of sculpture with three essential values in mind: Rarity, Integrity and Beauty.

Stuart Lochhead sells important bust by Girardon– watch its journey from TEFAF to its homecoming at Versailles


After Canova

French school, second half of the 19th century
Hercules and Lichas
This impressive bronze is a fine cast after the monumental, over three-metre-tall composition executed by Antonio Canova


Jean-Joseph Carriès (1855-1894)
Le Grenouillard (the Frog-man)
Like in a Boschian dream, Carriès' striking composition of a half-man, half-frog creature materialises before the viewer.


Jacob Sigisbert Adam (Nancy, 1670 - 1747)
Louis XIV Trampling on Heresy, c. 1700
The abbot Claude Robert Husson wrote about Adam in 1766, “Jacob Sigisbert Adam, trained under the famous César Bagard, made figures in terracotta that were even more sought after than those in bronze”.

Southern Germany

Immaculate Virgin
This virtuoso, polychrome wood sculpture epitomises the Bavarian Rococo style with its varied use of colour, gilding and paint finish.


Joseph Plura (1724-1756)
Bust of Gratiana Davenport, 1753
The exquisitely carved bust is one of only two marbles known by the hand of the Italy-born British sculptor Joseph Plura.

Nino Pisano

Tuscan school, active 1334 - 1368
Saint John the Baptist, c. 1360-65
In his 2005 article F. Caglioti described this exquisite sculpture as a “splendid St John the Baptist by the artist, unpublished and in a private collection outside of Italy”.


Filippo Parodi (Genoa, 1630-1702)
Christ at the Column, circa 1679
Parodi is widely regarded as Genoa’s foremost native baroque sculptor. His compositions defined the visual culture of the city and decorated the altars of prominent churches across late seventeenth-century Europe.


Antoine-Denis Chaudet (1756 - 1820)
Belisarius and His Guide, c.1795-1820
Depicting Flavius Belisarius, the last great Roman general, this special bronze is by any standards a masterpiece, one of the finest neo-classical bronze sculptures to have been made.
The works illustrated here are but a selection.
We welcome visitors by appointment.
