19th Century Plaster Bust

  • H: 56 cm (22 1/16")
  • W: 63 cm (24 13/16")

19th Century plaster bust of a man wearing scholarly or religious robes. 

This bust exhibits wonderful attention to detail, including intricate creases to the robes, hair and beard, and wrinkles and other signs of age to the face. 

The white of the plaster is showing through the coating in a couple of places. 

The market for plaster figures peaked in the 19th Century, holding both educational and commercial importance. 

Many Italians came to England to make a living making and selling busts and figures like this one. 

It was a time of great interest in classical antiquity, as the Elgin Marbles arrived in 1816 and went on display in the British Museum.
