Philip Lindsey-Clark

Categories: Sculpture

Countries: France

Sculptor. Born Brixton, son of the sculptor Robert Lindsey-Clark. He studied at Cheltenham and the City and Guilds School, Kensington. Served as a captain in WW1 but wounded in action receiving a DSO for conspicuous gallantry. Exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Salon des Artistes, Paris. From 1930 his work took on a more religious nature, then he entered a Carmelite order and retired to the West Country. HIs Cameronians War Memorial in Glasgow has similarities with the St Saviour's war memorial. Father of Michael Lindsey-Clark, also a sculptor. 

Spitalfields Life has a good post and excellent photos of Lindsey-Clark's four panels located in Widegate Street, depicting the baking trade.

2017: We think we've found a photo of him but it's small, and we rather want to keep our photo of the Widegate sculpture. Our correspondent, John Reed, told us that Lindsey-Clark had done the Stations of the Cross at Holy Apostles Church Pimlico. One of the photos there shows a man, probably Lindsey-Clark, working on a wall-mounted sculpture.

2018: We were contacted by Helen Lindsey-Clark who has kindly sent this photo. Good to see his face, at last. We note that she spells her and her husband’s grandfather's name with a hyphen, so we have adopted that too.

From official sources our colleague Andrew Behan has found his exact d.o.b. but for d.o.d. all he can say is that it was recorded in Exeter, Devon in December 1977.
