Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope was an 18th-century English poet. From 1719 onwards he lived in a villa in Twickenham. Walking along the Thames, I came across a memorial and some benches with some of his sayings.

Not far from the Pope memorial and having no connection whatever are a set of statues called “The naked ladies” in the grounds of York House.  They are made from Carrara marble but but no one is really certain which particular group of ladies they represent.
