A Deaf And Dumb Sculptor
There has just been placed outside St. Saviour's Church, for the Deaf
and Dumb, Oxford Street, London, a statue of "The Good Shepherd," which
has been entirely modelled and carved by Mr. Joseph Gawen, a deaf mute,
who was a pupil of the late Mr. Behnes, and an assistant of the late Mr.
Foley, R.A. The statue is pronounced by competent judges to be an
admirable work of art. He also executed a marble bust of the wife of Sir
G. E. Hodgkinson. Some years ago he produced a splendid model in
competition for the Wellington Memorial.
