Tour Scotland Video Motherless Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum Glasgow

Tour Scotland video of the Motherless plaster sculpture by George Lawson in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum on ancestry visit to Glasgow, Scotland. George Anderson Lawson, born 1832, died 1904, was a British Victorian era sculptor who was associated with the New Sculpture movement. He was born at Edinburgh, the son of David Lawson and Anne Campbell. He was educated at George Heriot's Hospital. He trained under Alexander Handyside Ritchie, and in the schools of the Royal Scottish Academy. Lawson travelled to study in Rome, becoming an admirer of John Gibson. Back in England, he lived initially in Liverpool. He later created the memorial to Robert Burns in Ayr, inaugurated in 1892. He is also remembered for his classical friezes, especially reliefs for Glasgow City Chambers, George Square, and panels for the Municipal Buildings, Bath, England.
