BUSHNELL, John
(c. 1630-1701)

Sir Thomas Gresham

1680s
Stone
Old Bailey, London

At the end of the 17th century, sculptors like Bushnell were working in in a reasonably attractive if rather a traditional style, which could be regarded as outmoded, if judged by contemporary French or Italian standards.

Bushnell was commissioned to execute the statue of Sir Thomas Gresham by the Royal Exchange.
