(Edward) Alfred Briscoe Drury RA (11 November 1856 - 24 December 1944) was an English architectural sculptor and figure in the New Sculpture movement. Drury is best represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum, where he contributed the figure of Prince Albert immediately above the main entrance, nine lunettes with Drury's characteristic allegorical girls each bearing a portion of the museum's motto, allegorical figures of Inspiration and Knowledge, and Queen Victoria above it all, carrying a staff and flanked by a knight and angel. (The spandrel figures of Truth and Beauty are by George Frampton.)
He was born in Islington, London on 11 November 1856. Drury studied under the Frenchmen Édouard Lantéri and Jules Dalou, with whom he worked between 1881 and 1885, and then became assistant to Joseph Boehm.
He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1900 and a full Academician in 1913. He was also member of the International Society of Sculptors, Painters and Gravers.
