John Cheere (1709 ~ 1787), was the leading producer of lead statuary for noble and wealthy clients, as well as working in plaster. Contemporary accounts of his yard, which was situated on Hyde Park Corner indicate that his oeuvre was highly varied and included rustic figures as well as classical statues and busts from antiquity
