Walter S. Allward (1874–1955) was a sculptor for over forty years, and over the course of his career his openness to new ideas led to radical changes in the way he handled figures and spatial composition. His landmark works, including the Baldwin–Lafontaine Monument in Ottawa, the Bell Memorial in Brantford, and his masterpiece, the Vimy Memorial in France, stand as the work of an artist in his prime with a vision entirely his own. Allward’s early monuments reflect the dominating Beaux-Arts style. Despite his mastery of this tradition, Allward sought out new approaches, finding inspiration in the work of European and American sculptors, such as Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) and Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907).
