Edward Onslow Ford <ul><li>Edward Onslow Ford (July 27, 1852 – December 23, 1901) was an English Sculptor and a pioneer for Realist art. </li></ul><ul><li>Ford created new ways of working with metal which allowed artists to have the real precession that was seen during this age. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of his most famous works were Statue of Maharaja Lakshmeshwar Singh (pictured left), Folly, and Glory to the Dead which portrayed the style of the era because they were of real life people and objects, and were incredibly real looking unlike anything ever scene before. </li></ul>
