Pericles in Preston, by Mullins.
The sculptor Edwin Roscoe Mullins was born in London, studied at the RA Schools, and worked as assistant to J. Birnie Philip before travelling to Munich to work under Wagmuller, where he shared a studio with Onslow Ford. Returning to London in 1874, he specialised in architectural sculpture, busts and ideal groups with themes such as childhood and innocence. He exhibited more than 40 works at the Royal Academy from 1873. His magnum opus was the highly classical pedimental group for the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston. Other work includes various memorials, decorative relief panels for Braithwaite Hall in Croydon (part of the Town Hall), two ideal sculptures in City Art Gallery, Glasgow, and a statue of the poet William Barnes in Dorchester.
