Catherine Andras (1775–1860) was an English sculptor best known for her wax models. Andras was born in Bristol and orphaned at an early age. She was adopted by miniature painter Robert Bowyer and his wife in 1799. She exhibited in London from 1799 onwards, and in 1802 was appointed Modeller in Wax to Queen Charlotte. She was awarded 'The Larger Silver Pallet' by the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce for her models of Princess Charlotte and of Lord Nelson.[1] Works by Andras are displayed in the British Museum[2] and Westminster Abbey.[3]
