A bit more of Annesley Tittensor

Some new material added to the page on the neglected but highly talented Wolverhampton sculptor Annesley (Andy) Tittensor, from a scrapbook archived at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. (Scroll down to the lower half.) Many thanks to his daughter Rose for spotting this and pointing it out to me.

    I met Tittensor in the early 1980s when I was researching the sculptor R J Emerson who taught him at Wolverhampton School of Art. He had a very high regard for Emerson and recalled that it was he who encouraged him to carve the Dharana figure and enter it for the W’ton Society of Artists exhibition. Emerson provided the wood from a tree in his own garden and, after the work was widely acclaimed, proposed it as an appropriate purchase to the Art Gallery curator. Emerson knew that Tittensor needed the cash to help fund his move to the Royal College of Art.

    I remember there were a number of lovely terracotta sculptures in Tittensor’s studio and garden at Kew including several life-cast torsos.
