Hartwell was sculptor of the bronze Memorial to Field-Marshal Sir Henry Wilson next to Liverpool Street Station in London. As part of the Chantrey Bequest, Tate Britain now holds his A Foul in the Giants' Race (a group of Indian elephants and their riders, 1908) and Dawn (a rather typically dreamy New Sculpture piece in marble, c.1909-1914).
