GRINLING GIBBONS (Rotterdam, 1648 – London, 1721) is widely regarded as the finest wood carver in England. The “British Bernini” worked primarily in lime wood, sculpting detailed renderings of musical instruments, cherubs and birds amidst cascades of fruit and flowers. Gibbons worked on St. Paul’s Cathedral under Christopher Wren as well as Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace among many others.
