John Raphael Smith at the V&A, Londonmyminifactory.com
John Raphael Smith (1751-1812) helped Chantrey establish his career in London. A famous printmaker and print publisher, he went deaf in old age. Chantrey said that the expression of deafness was conveyed mainly by the mouth: 'If you observe a deaf man's mouth, you will always find the lips unclosed when he is attending to you'.

King James II at The Tate Britain, Londonmyminifactory.com
James II (1633-1701) succeeded his brother Charles II as king in 1685. As a Roman Catholic he was mistrusted in Britain, then a Protestant country with a history of religious conflict. The birth of a male heir in 1688 and the prospect of a Catholic dynasty led Protestant noblemen to invite William of Orange and his wife Mary (James II’s daughter) to take the crown in the ‘Glorious Revolution’. James was exiled, and his ambitions of returning as king ended in defeat at the Battle of the Boyne (1690). This bust displays the extravagant ‘baroque’ style of the period.

The Mummy of Titos Flavios Demetrios in Ipswich Museum, UKmyminifactory.com
Titos Flavios Demetrios lived and died in Egypt about 2000 years ago in a time when the Roman Empire ruled the Nile Valley. He was a wealthy man born about 400 years after his Greek ancestors settled in Egypt after Alexander the Great conquered it in 305 BC. His three names tell us he was also a Roman citizen. We do not know why he was given citizenship as it is unlikely he ever visited Rome but it certainly made him one of the most important men living in his town of Hawara in the middle of Egypt.

Le Cabotin at The Petit Palais, Parismyminifactory.com
This is a fictional portrait of an actor in decline, the bust is part of a series of works of 'épaves (wrecks)' and 'désolés (apologies)' as said by its critics. It is paradoxically dedicated to the actor Coquelin Cadet, a friend of the sculptor Carriès. The fine quality of the bronze and the beauty of the patine are evidence of an exemplary association between Carriès and the founder Pierre bingen, a promoter of handmade lost wax crafting.
Bust of a Female Slave at The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagenmyminifactory.com
Carpeaux and his atelier worked up a successful commercial edition of terracotta busts based on the bronze figures constituting his Four Parts of the World Sustaining the Globe, which is the central element of the fountain of the Observatory in the Luxembourg Gardens, Paris. The date of 1872 on this sensitively detailed example corresponds to that of the plaster model of the group shown in that year's Salon; the fountain itself was inaugurated in 1874. He added a Michelangelesque sideward turn, ropes across the chest that seem barely able to contain the young woman's energy, and the poignant inscription on the base: Pourquoi! Naître esclave! (Why born a slave?).
James Wolf at The National Portrait Gallery, Londonmyminifactory.com
James Wolfe (1727-59) was a General. He was sent to capture Quebec and so to end French rule in Canada. Wolfe achieved success by discovering a steep unguarded patch which enabled him to land his troops unobserved; he led the attack on the Plains of Abraham above Quebec, but died of wounds before he could enter the city. This plaster cast by Joseph Wilton is posthumous; stated to be based on a servant of Lord Gower's who was very like Wolfe. Wilton found the hero's face 'too much distorted' when his coffin was opened at Portsmouth.

Lord John Russell at The National Portrait Gallerymyminifactory.com
John Russell, 1st Earl Russell, KG, GCMG, PC (18 August 1792 – 28 May 1878), known as Lord John Russell before 1861, was a leading Whig and Liberal politician who served as Prime Minister on two occasions during the mid-19th century. Scion of one of the most powerful aristocratic families, his great achievements, says A. J. P. Taylor, were based on his indefatigable battles in Parliament over the years on behalf of the expansion of liberty; after each loss he tried again and again, until finally his efforts were largely successful. Woodward, however, argued that he was too much the abstract theorist, so that "He was more concerned with the removal of obstacles to civil liberty than with the creation of a more reasonable and civilized society. Nevertheless Russell led his Whig Party into support for reform; he was the principal architect of the great Reform Act of 1832. As Prime Minister his luck ran out. He took much of the blame for the government's failures in dealing with the Irish famine. Taylor concludes that as prime minister, he was not a success. Indeed, his Government of 1846 to 1852 was the ruin of the Whig party: it never composed a Government again, and his Government of 1865 to 1866, which might be described as the first Liberal Government, was very nearly the ruin of the Liberal party also.

Laurence Sterne at The National Portrait Gallery, Londonmyminifactory.com
Laurence Sterne (1713-68) was a writer and curator of the Coxwolds, Yorkshire and author of the humorous 'Tristram Shandy' (1759) and 'A Sentimental Journey (1768). His work, filled with obscene language and ridicule of public figures, earned him both celebrity and scorn in literary circles. This marble bust was sculpted by Joseph Nollekens, dated 1766.
Bust of Marsyas at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
Permoser's grimacing and contorted stone figures on the Zwinger Palace in Dresden embody the German Baroque in sculpture. This agonizingly expressive bust of Marsyas, carved in Italy early in his career, reveals his absorption of the style of Gian Lorenzo Bernini and forecasts the distinctive manner Permoser would develop in his native country. The tortured expression of the screaming satyr Marsyas, flayed alive after losing a musical contest with the god Apollo, responds especially to Bernini's Damned Soul of 1619. The savage face riven by clenched brows and eyes squinting in pain, however, is distinctly the sculptor's own creation. Deliberately rough, flamelike hair contrasts excruciatingly precise details like the torn tongue. The bust's unfinished back and emplacement for a bracket suggest that it was originally intended for a niche, perhaps in a palace courtyard.

Antoon Van Dyck at The Louvre, Parismyminifactory.com
This marble bust carved in 1819 was executed by French sculptor Nicolas-Augustin Matte (Paris, 1781 - Paris 1837) depicting the Flemish painter Antoon Van Dyck. The bust was commissioned to decorate the Painter rooms of the Louvr. Sir Anthony van Dyck (22 March 1599 – 9 December 1641) was a Flemish Baroque artist who became the leading court painter in England, after enjoying great success in Italy and Flanders. He is most famous for his portraits of Charles I of England and his family and court, painted with a relaxed elegance that was to be the dominant influence on English portrait-painting for the next 150 years. He also painted biblical and mythological subjects, displayed outstanding facility as a draughtsman, and was an important innovator in watercolour and etching.
François Coppée at the Jardin du Luxembourg, Parismyminifactory.com
François Edouard Joachim Coppée (26 January 1842 – 23 May 1908) was a French poet and novelist. He was born in Paris to a civil servant. After attending the Lycée Saint-Louis he became a clerk in the ministry of war, and won public favour as a poet of the Parnassian school. His first printed verses date from 1864. In 1869 his first play, Le Passant, was received with approval at the Odéon theatre, and later Fais ce que dois (1871) and Les Bijoux de la délivrance (1872), short poetic dramas inspired by the Franco-Prussian War, were applauded.
