Edward Hodges Baily, an English sculptor, horn at Bristol, March 10, 1788, died May 22, 18(57. His father was a ship carver. The son was placed in a counting house, but his taste for art led him to take up the vocation of a modeller in wax, in which he gained some reputation. In 1807 he went to London, and entered the studio of Flaxman. From the society of arts and sciences he received the silver medal, and from the royal academy he gained both the gold and silver medals, and a purse of 50 guineas; his subject on the latter occasion being "Hercules restoring Alcestis to Admetus." At the age of 25 he produced the statue of "Eve at the Fountain." Among his other works were "Hercules casting Lichas into the Sea," "Apollo discharging his Arrows," the colossal statue of Nelson in Trafalgar square, well known statues of Earl Grey, Sir Astley Cooper, and Sir Robert Peel, portions of the sculptures at Buckingham palace, "Eve listening to the Voice," "Preparing for the Bath," "The Graces," "The sleeping Nymph," and "The fatigued Huntsman."
