HERBERT HAMPTON (1862-1929)
DESIGNS FOR A MEMORIAL TO EARL HAIG pencil 37 x 25.2cm Provenance: Abbott and Holder, 1997 These designs are for a monument to General Haig (who died in early 1928) in London. The eventual monument in Whitehall was by A F Hardiman and was not unveiled until 1937, after much controversy (c.f. A "matter for artists and not for soldiers"? The Cultural Politics of the Earl Haig National Memorial, 1928-37, by Stephen Heathorn, in Journal of British Studies, 44, July 2005). Hampton was clearly intending a rather grand monument, with the equestrian figure in front of a substantial pillar surmounted by sculptures, or on a plinth. The drawings show the sculptor's initial ideas, although of course the monument was never carried out in this form. Hampton was a sculptor and landscape painter, who had been trained at the Slade and in Paris. Noted for his portraits and for his public sculpture, his main public works include Queen Victoria for Ipswich, Lancaster, New Zealand, and India; King Edward VII and King George V for India and London; Lord Aberdare for Cardiff; The Hon. William Rolleston for New Zealand; The Marquess of Salisbury for the Foreign Office; The Duke of Devonshire for Whitehall; Lord Hardinge of Penshurst for Bombay & Bankispur; Lady Hardinge for Delhi. He also executed numerous portrait sculptures, many exhibited at Royal Academy exhibitions. When Haig died, Hampton was one of several sculptors to put his name forward to do a memorial - including Wade, Adrian Jones, Jennings, Macdougal, Geraldine Blake Thomas, and the Frenchman Georges Malissard. When the competition, limited to 3 younger sculptors (Reid Dick, Ledward, and Jagger) was announced in January 1929, Hampton wrote in protest to the Times (published 5 February 1928). Sadly eight days later the same paper published his Obituary. 25 Blythe Road
