Herbert William Palliser (1883-1963)

Biography of sculptor Herbert William Palliser (1883-1963)

Herbert William Palliser (1883-1963) was born in Northallerton in 1883, and studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and then at the Slade.

There are three public works of architectural sculpture by Palliser in central London, all in stone.

In King William Street, in what is now a Russian bank, but was once the London Life Association, are three pairs of seated figures.

On the north side of Southwark Bridge in Vintners Place is a sculpture of a woman representative of the spirit of the grape harvest, flanked by two goats and with swans on the supporting blocks.

Most ambitious is the pediment group for a large building facing Southampton Row, which consists of three figures with machinery.
