Morton Bartlett

From Marion Harris's official Bartlett page: 'Although educated at Phillips Exeter Academy and Harvard, Morton Bartlett (01909-01992) worked in a variety of undemanding fields in order to focus on his self-taught skills as a sculptor and photographer. Orphaned at age seven and never married, Morton Bartlett created his own fantasy family. With staggering precision, he meticulously sculpted fifteen figures, each taking over a year to complete, clothing them in lovingly constructed outfits he personally made for them, from hand-knitted cardigans to embroidered jackets and hats.'
