Yet they never knew each other. Writer Phyllida Shaw will share her research into the work of Alice Meredith Williams, which includes the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle; Casting the World Curator Sue Bucklow will shed light on the little acknowledged life and work of Amy Singer, daughter of John Webb Singer, who shared a studio with Camille Claudel and was mentored by Rodin.
