    Sir Edward Onslow Ford (1852–1901) was a prominent British sculptor associated with the New Sculpture movement of the late 19th century. Born in London, Ford studied at the South Kensington School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools. Known for his departure from traditional classical styles, he contributed significantly to the movement's emphasis on naturalism and expressiveness. Ford's notable works include the bronze statue of Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey's Poets' Corner and the memorial "Physical Energy" dedicated to Cecil Rhodes in Oxford. Elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1889, he became a full Academician in 1895. Unfortunately, Ford's promising career was cut short by his death at the age of 48 in 1901.
