world pictures Northern India: Calcutta Again (2018)




A fair amount of sculpture is still on display, including this statue outside the north entrance. Curzon had written that here Victoria "will be depicted in bronze in a sitting posture, as she was in advanced years." She holds the orb of state with a figure of St. George.

Cotton adds that "her late Majesty commanded the sculptor to submit a sketch model personally to herself at Osborne, allowed him one or two sittings, and suggested certain alterations and improvements in the design, finally expressing her entire satisfaction..."

The sculptor was George Frampton, better known for London's Edith Cavell monument (and, in a lighter vein, for the W.S. Gilbert memorial on the Embankment there).
