Morcom was born near Wrexham in North Wales, and, upon moving to Liverpool in 1891, trained as a carver in stone and marble before moving to Leicester in 1913.  He showed a number of portrait busts and medals at the Royal Academy between 1908 and 1935, including a niche group in bronze for the War Memorial in the Masonic Hall in Leicester (1921).  In addition, Morcom exhibited his works, which included sculptures in marble, ivory and plaster at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool from 1903, as well as at the Royal Cambrian Academy and the Leicester Society of Artists’ Annual Exhibitions.

This striking bust, which dates from the mid-1930s, combines an interest in traditional metalworking techniques with the vogue for semi-abstraction in the human face seen in works by Picasso and Modigliani.
