Footnotes

  • John Willis Good is today recognised as perhaps the most talented English animalier sculptor of his time producing works which were comparable to the masters of the French animalier school. During his short but prolific career he concentrated mainly on studies of hunting scenes, dogs and racehorses in bronze and terracotta. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1870 to 1878 with the firm of Elkington & Co. casting many of his models.
