Mgr. James Nugent
Frederick William Pomeroy
Bronze on a sandstone pedestal
St John's Gardens, Liverpool
Rare or even unique in its commemoration of a Catholic priest in a public place, this monument is not perhaps one of Pomeroy's strongest productions. The clerical robes make rather a solid block of Nugent himself, while the thin ragged boy being gathered in towards him, and looking up at him as to a saviour, stands awkwardly. Yet these very features contribute to the poignant effect of the composition.
