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

Stuart Lochhead Sculpture offers the best in all media from antiquity to the 20th century. 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 precise research we pursue the acquisition and sale of sculpture with three essential values in mind: Rarity, Integrity and Beauty.

Gregorio di Lorenzo

Gregorio di Lorenzo (Florence, c. 1436 - Forli, c. 1504)
Virgin and Child holding a bird, circa 1490
This important marble represents a fundamental addition to Gregorio’s catalogue, showing a previously unknown composition of a Madonna and Child group by the artist.

Giambologna

Florence, circa 1600
Cristo Vivo
A beautifully chased gilt bronze from the workshop of Antonio Susini.

Nottingham School

English, Nottingham, 15th century
Mary Magdalene
Nottingham alabasters represent the largest single source of English sculpture to have survived from the Middle Ages. This polychrome alabaster relief retains much of its original paint decoration.

Carriès

Jean-Joseph Carriès (Lyon, 1855 - Paris, 1894)
A portrait of Frans Hals, 1885-92
A patinated plaster made for the artists' patron Granottier in 1892.

Lorta

Jean-François Lorta (Paris, 1752 - Versailles, 1837)
Sacrifice to Love & Sacrifice to Jupiter, 1790
Two delightful terracotta reliefs signed by a little-known but evidently very gifted French artist.

Marque

Albert Marque (Nanterre, 1872-1947)
Sleep
A style inspired by Carpeaux and Dalou and infused with Renaissance and classical art. Marque exhibited frequently at the Salons of Paris including the Salon de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts where this marble relief was exhibited in 1899.

David d'Angers

David d’Angers (Angers, 1788 - Paris, 1856)
A portrait of Eustache Langlois du Pont de l’Arche (1777-1837), 1838
David d'Angers wrote in 1828 in his Notebooks why he preferred portraits in profile: “I discover the character of a person better in profile than in a face.” With assertively modelled features and tousled hair, these portraits, along with his busts, show the influence of the then fashionable theories of phrenological and physiognomy.

David d’Angers

David d’Angers (Angers, 1788 - Paris, 1856)
A portrait of Jean Racine (1639-1699), 1832
This special plaster bust romanticises the great French writer renowned for his mastery of French classical tragedy.

Carpeaux

Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (Valenciennes 1827 - Courbevoie, 1875)
A portrait of the painter Jean-Léon Gérôme (1824-1904)
An intimate portrait of a fellow artist made of plaster – created whilst both were exiled in London in 1871.

Etex

Antoine Etex (Paris, 1808 - Chaville, 1888)
Charging Chasseur & Wounded Cuirassier, 1884
These two bronze reliefs with black patina provide us with a new element in the history of the tombs that Étex devoted to Théodore Géricault’s fame. As a tribute in sculpture to some of the most sculptural painting of the nineteenth century, Étex’s two reliefs express his commitment to bridging painting and sculpture.

Etex

Antoine Etex (Paris, 1808 - Chaville, 1888)
Model for the tomb of Théodore Géricault (1791-1824), 1840
“For your honour, sirs, for the honour of our fellow painters, the artist of the painting Medusa must have his tomb”, declared Etex when he discovered the indignity of the painter’s burial. This bronze is a reduced version of Etex’s monument in the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris.
