Thomas Woolner was an English sculptor, and one of the founding members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He travelled to Australia to seek a fortune; although he didn't find any gold, his art work was well-received. He returned to England with an enhanced reputation, and became the most popular sculptor of portrait busts in the country, sculpting Wordsworth, Tennyson, Browning, Gladstone, Darwin, Dickens, and Carlyle, among many others. His style found a middle ground between sympathy and accuracy, which ultimately pleased his subjects but not always the art community.
