George Bullock was a brilliantly original and stylish furniture maker and sculptor who died, probably aged 35, in 1818. Virtually forgotten from that moment, he is now suddenly arousing extraordinary interest among historians and collectors, providing a description of him as 'a rival to Chippendale' (The Times). Bullock's highly original designs and patriotic use of British woods, marbles and decorative motifs attracted a distinguished clientele. This is the first book to be published on Bullock. It is the catalogue of a major exhibition mounted by Blairman's of London and the National Museums & Galleries on Merseyside (Sudley Art Gallery) and includes a full survey of Bullock's varied and sometimes surprising career as well as more than 120 illustrations of his work. It has been compiled by Martin Levy, Clive Wainwright and Lucy Wood, together with Timothy Stevens, who has contributed a detailed analysis of Bullock's career as a sculptor.
