The bust in the RA exhibition of 1898 is described in the catalogue as a marble. Pinker may initially have exhibited a plaster bust in 1888, and only executed the marble in 1898, dating it to the year when the original model was executed; on the other hand, the two RA busts may represent different types. Another version of the NPG bust is in Westminster Abbey, reproduced Country Life, CXXXIX (1966), 778.
