He was a medallist and sculptor, best known for the “Jubilee head” of Queen Victoria on coinage, and the statue of the Duke of Wellington at Hyde Park Corner.
He was often commissioned by the Royal Family and members of the aristocracy to make sculptures for their parks and gardens. His oeuvre is substantial, and he exhibited 123 works at the Royal academy, from 1862 to his death in 1890. Ref: Tate 2021.
