Portrait of John Tweed

Sculptor John Tweed moved into 108 Cheyne Walk with his new wife Edith Clinton, secretary to the Women's Suffrage Society in 1895 and was to remain there for the rest of his life. While studying in Paris he met Auguste Rodin and they became close friends, always staying with the Tweeds on his trips to London. Tweed's training was completed while working with Hamo Thornycroft on the frieze for the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
