Worcester sculptor William Forsyth
The sculptor William Forsyth (1833–1915) was influential in establishing the character of late Victorian Worcester and Malvern. His sculptures – in stone, wood, metal, plaster and terracotta – enliven the buildings of Worcester, inside and outside. Although he is less well known than his brother James, who carved the famous fountains at Witley Court, his practice was typical of many provincial artists of the period.
Examples include a hop merchant’s offices, the head office of a local bank, and Forsyth’s own workshop.
