Alexander Brodie


1830 - 1867

Sculptor. Born in Aberdeen, the younger brother of another sculptor William Brodie (1815-81). He began working in a foundry in the city but soon moved to Edinburgh to train in art at the Trustees' Academy under Robert Scott Lauder (1803-69). Brodie returned to Aberdeen in 1858.

His public works include the statue of Queen Victoria at Queen's Cross (Aberdeen) and the statue of the Charles Gordon-Lennox, 5th Duke of Richmond (1791 - 1860), in the centre of Huntly.

Still unmarried, he committed suicide and lies buried close to his parents in St. Clement's kirkyard, Footdee.
