St Andrew's church, Blickling, Norfolk

The monument to the memory of the 8th Marquis of Lothian, commissioned by the Marquis himself in the 1880s. The artist was the renowned Victorian painter and sculptor George Edward Watts, better known for his involvement in the 'symbolist' movement. He is recorded to have stated that 'I paint ideas, not things'. However, his treatment of the effigy at Blickling, with its long curling hair and folded drapery, marks it out as one of the finest church monuments of the period. The Marquis however was eventually buried elsewhere.
