Narrative: Our other complaint on behalf of the sculptors still remains in full force, and we fear, will so remain till public opinion forces upon Government the claims of our own artists to its primary consideration, and the wealthy patron of Art shall learn to notice sculpture at least as highly as he now estimates painting. We have seen within the last month a nobleman purchasing a single picture at the cost of 4500, or thereabouts—a work of which, whatever its merits may be) time in a century or two will in all probability leave little else than the bare canvas. Now this sum would have procured its possessor three, certainly, of the most beautiful sculptures of modern times—works that, carefully preserved, would endure for ever. We confess ourselves quite unable to comprehend, this prodigal outlay upon one art, and the total indifference to another. These remarks, although not bearing on the subject immediately before us, have arisen out of it. Mr.E. G. Papworth, jun., the sculptor of the statue here engraved, is a young artist, who was fortunate in getting a commission for the work from the late Mr. J. Neeld, M.P., one of the very few of our wealthy countrymen to whom our sculptors have been indebted. But Mr. Papworth'a case is an exception to the general rule, and. is therefore no argument against the foregoing observations. The statue, exhibited this year at the Academy, possesses merits which are an earnest of greater things for the future. The " Surprise" is created by a hawk having fallen at the feet of the nymph with its prey in its talons. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
