Edward W Wyon ( 1811-1885 ) - studied at the Royal Academy Schools from 1829. Among his commissions were works intended for reproduction by Wedgwood and numerous portrait busts.

He executed reliefs for Drapers' Hall, London (1866), and two caryatids for the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge (1874).

He was commissioned by Art Union of London in 1856 to produce 'Stepping Stones”.

His works dates are usually the year a work was exhibited so may differ from date of production. 
New entries have been made each time a work was exhibited.

He exhibited at:

The International Exhibition, London, 1862

International Exhibition of Arts and Manufactures, Dublin, 1865

The Exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts, The Eighty-Seventh, 1855

Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations (London), 1851

The Dilettante Society or Dilettanti is a society of noblemen and scholars which sponsors the study of ancient Greek and Roman art, and the creation of new work in the style. The society was established in 1734 by a group of people who had been on Ground Tour. The group, initially led by Francis Dashwood, contained several dukes and was later joined by Joshua ReynoldsDavid GarrickUvedale Price and Richard Payne Knight, among others.

Today The Society has 60 members, elected by secret ballot. An induction ceremony is held at a London Brook's club. It makes annual donations to the British Schools in Rome and Athens, and a separate fund set up in 1984 provides financial assistance for visits to classical sites and museums.

Marble dust is combined with cement or synthetic resins to make reconstituted or cultured marble. The appearance of marble can be simulated with faux marbling, a painting technique that imitates the stone's colour patterns.
