Wren Display: Roubilliac Bust of Sir Isaac Newton

Bust of Sir Isaac Newton

18th century

Sir Christopher Wren envisaged from the outset that the interior of the Wren Library would be enhanced by sculpture.

This marble bust of Sir Isaac Newton was created by Louis François Roubiliac, the leading sculptor in England in the mid-18th century though the bust was not placed in the Library until the 19th century.
