Monument to George Robert Broad (1840-95) and Caroline Broad (1840-1905) by Aristide Fabbrucci (c. 1859-1903), who also created C.R. Cockerell's memorial in St. Paul’s Cathedral. Bronze. Hammersmith (Margravine) Cemetery. Broad owned the Hammersmith Foundry that cast Gilbert’s Eros. Fabbrucci, born in Florence, settled in London, and was responsible for some fine work. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1880-1903. Gary Nisbet, who provided that information, also tells us that he was the "landlord of painters James McNeil Whistler and Walter Sickert, and sculptor Alfred Drury, who occupied his property at 454a Fulham Road."
