Edward William Wyon

Categories: Sculpture

Sculptor. Born Edward William Wyon in Christchurch, Surrey, into a family of die-casters and medallists. Brother to Thomas. He exhibited frequently at the Royal Academy and received numerous commissions for portrait busts. He executed reliefs for the Drapers' Hall, London and two caryatides for the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. We can't find an actual picture of him, so have used his engraving for Tennyson's 'The Princess'.
