During Antonio Canova's visit to London in 1814, the painter Thomas Lawrence introduced him to the promising sculptor, Richard James Wyatt. In 1821, Wyatt accepted Canova's invitation to work in his studio in Rome. Although Wyatt, like his friend John Gibson, settled permanently in the city practising his profession there with great success, he received commissions from London and frequently sent works back to be exhibited at the Royal Academy.
