Thomas Woolner

Author Code: ETHW

Born: Dec. 17, 1825 - Hadleigh, Suffolk, England

Died: Oct. 7, 1892 - Londn, England

Woolner was apprenticed to William Behnes in 1837 to study art. In 1842, he began studying at the Royal Academy. He exhibited his first sculptures in 1843. He won the Society of Arts medal in 1845. In 1847, he met Daniel Rossetti who invited hm to become a member of the Pre-Raphaelite brethren. In 1850, he contributed his first poems, My Beautiful Lady and My Lady in Death, to the group's magazine, The Germ. The poems received much adulation, but Woolner's career remained in art and sculpture. After years of limited success, Woolner sailed for Australia in 1852 in order to accumulate wealth in the gold fields. He only managed a very small income and turned once again to sculpture. He then had some success in Melbourne before returning to England in 1854. In 1857, he produced a bust of Tennyson that finally established him in the art world. The bust is now in the Trinity College library. From then until his death, Woolner was extremely successful producing some of England's most memorable statues. In 1871, he was elected an associate of the Royal Academy. He died suddenly, following a stroke. His written works include Pygmalion (1881), Silenus (1884), Teresias (1886) and Poems (1887).
