Sculptor, craftsman and painter, Stevens was the son of a decorator whom he assisted from 1828 to 1833. He was then sent to Italy where he remained, studying and working for Thorwaldsen, until 1842. He spent two years at Blandford and two more teaching at the London School of Design. From 1850 to 1852 he worked as a designer to a Sheffield bronze manufacturer. Much of his later life was taken up with the memorial to the Duke of Wellington in St. Paul’s Cathedral. He painted few pictures and is best known for his chalk drawings and for his studies and designs. His work can be found in the collections of The British Museum; The Victorian and Albert Museum; The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; The National Gallery of Scotland, and The Portsmouth City Museum.
