John Elley Hinchcliffe (1777-1867)

J. E. Hinchcliffe - 'Hinchcliffe of Hampstead', was the chief assistant to Flaxman for the two decades before the latter's death. In the established custom, after his master's death, Hinchcliffe completed some of his unfinished works. Hinchcliffe exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1814, mainly groups, but also a few busts, before turning almost entirely to works for church monuments after about 1820. Examples of his work may be seen at Canterbury Cathedral and, for example, in St Anne's church in Lewes and in Chichester Cathedral.
