Title: Pan and the Three Graces
Item Name: Sculpture
Maker: Collins, William


This item is in the Burton Constable Hall collections and is included on this database by kind permission of the Burton Constable Foundation. Born in 1721, William Collins was a talented sculptor and modeller. A pupil of Sir Henry Cheere (1703-81), he later established his own workshop in Channel-Row, Westminster. Collins had worked with Timothy Lightoler (the architect responsible for redesigning the room) on a previous occasion and it is likely that Lightoler recommended him to William Constable. The sculptural decoration centres on the figure of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. Constable paid 20 guineas for his bas-relief of the infant Bacchus with the Nymphs of Nysa, accompanied by Pan and the three Graces. Located in the Dining Room
