John Henning (1771-1851) was a sculptor popular with the aristocracy for his portrait cameos and medallions, and remembered today for his architectural friezes - he created what is known as "The Parthenon frieze" for the Athenaeum Club "that follows in detail the original frieze round the Parthenon in Athens which was completed somewhere around 432 BC. The ancient Parthenon frieze is 524 feet in length and Henning’s design carved out of Bath stone is the same height of three feet three inches as the original but was shortened to 260 feet to fit the building’s design."
