Sculptures

The Woman that Thou gavest to be with me

 

 

Charles John Allen (1862 – 1956) was a British sculptor, a figure in the New Sculpture movement.

Born in Greenford, Middlesex, Allen studied at the Lambeth School of Art and then apprenticed with the London architectural sculpture firm Farmer & Brindley in 1879 and became the assistant to Hamo Thornycroft for four years. In 1894 Allen moved to Liverpool, where he spent more than thirty years as a respected teacher at the University of Liverpool and Vice-Principal at the Liverpool City School of Art.

* panels and other work for the Peres Bank, Leicester, circa 1900
