Sir Richard Owen, museum statue. British anatomist and palaeontologist Richard Owen (1804-1892) was the founder and first director of the Natural History Museum, London, UK. Owen became an expert in comparative anatomy and did extensive research on fossils and dinosaurs. He was initially bitterly opposed to Darwin's theory of evolution through natural selection, but subsequently changed his views as Darwin's ideas became widely accepted. Owen was knighted in 1884. This 1896 bronze statue, on a plinth of Numidian marble, is by Thomas Brock (1847-1922). Photographed on the stairs of the museum's Central Hall.
