Footnotes

  • A leading sculptor of his day he was a central figure of the New School of sculpture. The present version of this sculpture is the reduction of the full scale model, which was made for the collectors market. Frampton's famous statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens was commissioned by the character's creator Sir James Barrie and erected in 1912. The work was installed by night, so that it appeared, as if by magic, the next day. Seven casts of the original Kensington statue were also made, examples can found in Parc d'Egmont in Belgium, Utsunomiya Fairy Museum, Japan, and Sefton Park, Liverpool, as well as parks in Australia, Canada and America. It is rare to see a titled version of this model. The lack of a specific date in the casting further suggests that this is a pre-release trial model after which the study was produced in small numbers over a short number of years in the Edwardian era.
