In 1919 Reginald Thomas Cotterill became the first Head of Sculpture and Modelling Department at the Leeds College of Art and his curriculum covered all aspects of sculpture, including sessions in modelling from life. Life models at the College were nearly always male, and the large clay figures seen in the background, behind their proud creators, show the fruits of their training in making models for casting.
