Name of creator
James Gray (born c1866), of Inchbean, Kilmarnock, was officially appointed Interim Director in mid-June 1932, following John D Revel's resignation. He had been acting as Supervisor to the School from March 1932 and handed over the Directorship to W O Hutchison in July 1933.
Gray had trained at GSA under Newbery, taking classes from 1889-1904. He was very successful in both local and national competition and studied to become a certified art teacher under the South Kensington system.
He was a teacher in the School from 1893 and in 1900 taught in the Antique and Article 91d classes (precursor to the Article 55 teacher training classes). He then went onto become Head of the Day School and by 1931 he was Head of Modelling & Sculpture. He retired in 1933.
He was a sculptor who worked mainly in bronze, specialising in portrait busts and figure subjects, and showed at the RGI between 1893-1925.
