Footnotes

  • Sir William Reid Dick specialised in human and animal figures and was also commissioned to create various portraits. In the 'Slingboy' he has channelled the realism he employed for his many lifelike portraits into an idealised expression of male youth. This model was exhibited by Reid Dick at the Royal Academy in 1911.
    Reid Dick became an associate of the Royal Academy in 1921, and was elected president of the Royal Society of British Sculptors from 1933-1938. He was appointed Sculptor in Ordinary to King George VI as well as Queen Elizabeth II and many of his works can be found in London's Parks and Squares, notably the bronze of George V opposite the House of Parliament, the Statue of Roosevelt in Grosvenor Square and the eagle atop the Royal Air Force Monument on The Embankment.
