Biography Anne Seymour Damer
ANNE SEYMOUR DAMER (1749-1828)
Born to the British aristocracy, Anne Seymour Damer was an accomplished neo-classicist sculptor whose rank and wealth afforded her career both advantage and detraction. Having shown an early inclination for art, she received formal training abroad from the Italian master Giuseppe Ceracchi and in England from sculptor John Bacon the Elder. It was, however, in the wake of her troubled marriage to John Damer, the dilettante son of Lord Milton, and his subsequent suicide that she immersed herself in her work.
Best known for her portrait busts and animal sculptures in stone and marble, her grand-scale masks of the mythological characters Isis and Thame can be found on the keystones of the Henle
