Patric Park (Scottish, 1811 - 1855)
Patric Park was born in Glasgow and apprenticed to a local stonemason at the age of fourteen. After gaining experience in decorative stone carving, Park studied in Rome for two years from 1831, under Bertel Thorvaldson (1770 - 1843). On returning to Glasgow, Park established a studio and was particularly prolific in the production of portrait busts. However, he is reported to have 'alienated many of his clients by his blunt manner and eccentric behaviour.' Park settled in Manchester in 1852, after spending time in Edinburgh and London.
