RA Collection: Art

The architect John Belcher and sculptor Hamo Thornycroft were childhood friends and both became founder members of the Art Workers Guild in 1884.

Belcher entrusted the sculptural decoration of his newly designed Institute of Chartered Accountants, London to Thornycroft and Harry Bates (1850-1899).
