William Tyler (active circa 1760-died 1801), Sculptor and architect

Sitter in 5 portraits
Tyler was a London-based sculptor who, in 1768, was one of three sculptors, along with Joseph Wilton and Agostino Carlini, to be included among the thirty-six founder members of the Royal Academy. Most of his work as a sculptor involved the production of modestly sized monuments, the most striking of which is the monument to the third Earl of Lichfield at Spelsbury, Oxfordshire. During the 1780s and 1790s, he worked as an architect. He designed the Ordnance office in Westminster (1779-80; demolished 1805) and the Villa Maria, Kensington (c.1800), commissioned by the Duke of Gloucester for his wife.
