This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Fitzgerald Cornwall Peploe was born in England on the September 3, 1862, the second son of Major Daniel Peploe M.P. and Mrs Leila Peploe (daughter of Sir Thomas Metcalfe 4th Bart and niece of Lord Metcalfe - onetime Governor General of Canada). They lived at Garnstone Castle, Weobley in Herefordshire, which had been in the family's possession since 1660.

His family had hoped he would enter the British Army, but in 1884 he was sent to Canada 'under a cloud' to learn farming. By 1887 he had taken up sculpture studying at Florence and later at Paris and Rome, and he finally settled in New York where he had a studio at No 74 1/2, West 54th Street, the site of present day Museum of Modern Art.

Here he produced a considerable number of marble busts, and the sitters included Lady Randolph Churchill, Miss Rachel Gurney the well-known American socialite who was a mistress of King Edward Vlll and Harry Lehr.

He also sculpted bronze figures and these included 'A Cowboy' 1889 and 'A Spanish
American Civil War Soldier' 1900 cast by the Roman Bronze Works. His two most ambitious works were a full size sculpture of 'Lady Frankland' and 'The Goddess of Golf' made for the grounds of Mr Spencer jChapman's house at Dinard in France.

All his works were signed and dated, and he exhibited at the Royal Academy in London on three occasions.

He died unmarried of heart disease aged 45 in 1906 at Purchase and was
buried at the Kensico Cemetry near that place. Family tradition suggests that heavy drinking played an important role in his early demise.

Submitted February 2004 by Rupert Peploe, great, great nephew of the artist.
