Statue: George III with the River god
Erection date: 1789
Bronze statue erected in 1789 showing the king who had commissioned the rebuilding of Somerset House. The statue is awash with nautical allusions: the king rests against a rudder and has an antique prow at his feet, beneath which sits the river god with a cornucopia representing the Thames.
