Biography Dennis B. Sheahan
Dennis B. Sheahan evidently had an Irish
connection, for in 1879 he was commissioned by the Friendly Sons of
Saint Patrick to sculpt a bust of the poet Thomas Moore, which now
stands in Central Park, New York. Other recorded works include a 27 inch
high standing statue of Daniel O’Connell (sold through Skinner’s,
Massachusetts, 1997) and a marble bust of the engineer Joseph Harrison
Jnr in the Pennsylvania Academy for the Fine Arts. Sheahan earned a
degree of notoriety for his forgeries of eighteenth century sundials and
scientific equipment, which had become highly collectible by the late
1880s and proved a lucrative sideline industry.
