John Fisher the elder, and John Fisher the younger (sculptors)

This father and son from York, England were sculptors through the 18th century and into the 19th century. John Fisher the elder lived 1736-1804, whilst John Fisher the younger is thought to be born around 1760 and died in 1839. Their work is well represented in York Minster and in other Yorkshire towns.

Since their work is hard to distinguish one from the other (indeed they probably worked together on some pieces) their work is normally viewed as a pair. It is unlikely clearly that John Fisher the younger worked on anything before the age of 14 (1774) and clearly John Fisher the elder did not work beyond the year of his death (1804), but works in between may be viewed as combined works.
