A head of Brown for 2016

Lancelot Brown never sat for a portrait sculpture although three portraits exist.

I’d been thinking that Capability Brown would make a great posthumous subject, working from documentary sources just as Rodin did with his sculpture of Balzac – see here.

The forthcoming 2016 tercentenary celebrations suggest this would be a good time for it to happen; this diary will account the working process.
