The sculptor Samuel Joseph, 1791-1850, best known for his monument to William Wilberforce in Westminster Abbey. He studied under Peter Rouw the Younger, and was an important sculptor of monuments and portraits active in the early part of the 19th Century, and at the Royal Academy, where he won silver and gold medals. In 1823 he went to Edinburgh, where 3 years later he became one of the founders of the Royal Scottish Academy, and taught at the School of Arts, before returning to London where he settled in 1828.
Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, 1771-1832 was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet, popular throughout Europe during his time.
It seems likely that this bust, which can be dated to no later than 1832, was in fact produced to commemorate the death in that year of Scott and it is fitting that it was sculpted by this eminent Scottish sculptor.
