Biographical / Historical

Edward Hodges Baily (1788-1867) was a sculptor, designer and modeller of silver. A creator of numerous public monuments, he is best known as the creator of the sandstone sculpture of Horatio Nelson that stands atop Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Sqaure, London. However, "Eve at the Fountain" was the work that made Baily famous at the age of 34. A large plaster model for the finished sculpture is held at the Victoria & Albert Museum. For more details see the Dictionary of National Biography.
