Edward George Bramwell
Born in London, he studied sculpture there at the City and Guild's Schools, and won a silver medal and a travelling scholarship.

He worked for George Frampton , William Silver Frith and T Stirling Lee, and produced small groups and statuettes.

He taught modelling at Westminster School of Art and exhibited at the RA from 1898.

The figure representing Literature on GMAG is his only work in Glasgow and was won in competition in 1898.
