Antique Carved Marble Bust of the Duke of Wellington by Robert Physick

About

A carved white Carrara marble bust of Arthur Wellesley, The 1st Duke of Wellington By Robert Physick. Signed and dated 1853 to the reverse. Recorded as a 'Sculptor' in the Post Office London Directory of 1851, Robert Physick (1816-1882) was one of a family of four brothers who excelled in art; after the death of the Duke of Wellington in 1852, mementoes of the great soldier statesman were in demand. A regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy between 1837-1856, and at the Royal Manchester Exhibition of modern artists in 1876 showing the medal winning 'Bacchante'. Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, KG, GCB, GCH, PC, FRS (1 May 1769 - 14 September 1852) was an Anglo-Irish soldier and statesman who was one of the leading military and political figures of 19th century Britain, serving twice as Prime Minister. His victory against Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 puts him in the first rank of Britain's military heroes.
