Portrait of the Painter, Brangwyn (1938)

Albert Toft (1862 - 1949)

Standing figure of the artist in trousers, waistcoat and jacket with long scarf around neck, looking slightly to right, one hand in pocket of jacket, the other holding a palette. An area of rough metal by the palette suggests that he originally held brushes which have been broken off.

Albert Toft made two portrait bronzes of Frank Brangqwn, this statuette and a bust was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1938.
