The Mountbatten bust is certain to become one of the classic Wynne pieces which have earned him an international reputation. Perhaps his best known work is the 14 foot bronze “Boy with a Dolphin” which stands on the Embankment near Albert Bridge. With the recent increase in Beatles memorabilia, Wynne’s well-known bust of the Fab Four, of which 12 were produced, has become a much sought after work. Wynne himself has one in his studio which he is considering selling. Those would like a permanent momento of yesterday’s dreams please apply to David Wynne.
