One of a pair of white Carrara marble busts of Sir George Fleming Warren, 2nd Baron de Tabley.
In 1821 Wyatt worked in Canova’s studio in Rome and shortly thereafter set up on his own. Wyatt’s style was profoundly Canovan. His first commission, believed to be a nymph 'Musidora', was bought by the Duke of Devonshire in 1822, completed in 1824, and remains at Chatsworth House.
Once he gained recognition, he became one of the most sought-after sculptors in Rome. It is probably at this time that he received the commission from the 2nd Baron de Tabley. In 1841 Wyatt revisited England when he received a commission from Queen Victoria. 'Penelope with the Bow of Odysseus' is in the Royal Collection at Windsor.
