William Goscombe John in Hampstead


Headstone and figure. c1923. By Sir William Goscombe John.
Bronze figure and stone headstone. Rectangular stone kerbed
plot with crazy paved infill. Inscribed steps surmounted by a
sculptured bronze female figure, in flowing robes with head
covered by an enveloping shawl, moving away from the
spectator, her head turned for a final backward glance with
fingers of right arm raised to the lips. Forming a backdrop, a
square-headed headstone with battered sides and carved
segmental shaped cornice with anthemion motifs.
HISTORICAL NOTE: Sir William Goscombe John was a Welsh
sculptor who worked in the 1890s under Rodin in Paris.
