About Neale Andrew

A Sculptor whose particular skill in portraiture is exemplified in his amazing range of commissions who include Sir Alec Bedser, Harold "Dickie" Bird, John Major, Jimmy Young, Bobby Moore, Brian Johnston, Geoff Boycott, Tony Jacklin etc etc. In between he has little time to create his own work and this piece is consequently rare.
