CHANTREY, Sir Francis Legatt
(b. 1781, Norton, d. 1841, London)

Bishop Ryder Monument

Cathedral, Lichfield

Throughout his career Chantrey remained widely employed as a portraitist. However, he also had a successful career as a designer of funerary monuments. Here, his sense of humanity enabled him to create images that were tender without being sentimental.
