According to the Mapping Sculpture site, Hope-Pinker was born in Peckham, Surrey, the son of “a stonemason and builder employing 5 or 6 men c.1871 in Hove, Sussex,” who seems to have taught his son much of his stone-carving skills, “although he also attended the Royal Academy Schools (c.1871). Hope-Pinker typically carved without a model from drawings. The bulk of his work was portrait sculpture and John Hunter, Francis Darwin, Jowett, Martineau, Dean Liddell, Henry Acland and Friar Bacon were among his subjects. Hope-Pinker also created a number of monuments including a statue of Queen Victoria at George Town Demerara, Henry Fawcett in Salisbury market place and Lord Reay in India.”
