Marie Bashkirtseff at The Réunion des Musées Nationaux, Parismyminifactory.com
Marie Bashkirtseff was a Ukrainian diarist, painter and sculptor. From around the age of 13, Bashkirtseff kept a journal, and it is for this that she is probably most famous today. It has been called "a strikingly modern psychological self-portrait of a young, gifted mind," and her urgent prose, which occasionally breaks out into dialogue, remains extremely readable. She was multilingual and despite her self-involvement was a keen observer with an acute ear for hypocrisy, so that her journal also offers a near-novelistic account of the late 19th century European bourgeoisie. A consistent theme throughout is her deep desire to achieve fame, inflected by her increasing fear that her intermittent illnesses might turn out to be tuberculosis. In a prefatory section written towards the end of her life in which she recounts her family history, she writes, "If I do not die young I hope to live as great artist; but if I die young, I intend to have my journal, which cannot fail to be interesting, published. Similarly: "When I am dead, my life, which appears to me a remarkable one, will be read. (The only thing wanting is that it should have been different)." In effect, the first half of Bashkirtseff's journal is a coming-of-age story while the second is an account of heroic suffering.

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.
The First Duke of Wellington at The Tate Britain, Londonmyminifactory.com
This imposing, life-size white marble bust represents the famous soldier and statesman Arthur, Duke of Wellington (1769–1852) dressed in the manner of an ancient Roman general. The artist Edward Hodges Baily carved the portrait for the wealthy collector Robert Vernon (1774/5–1849) as part of a series of notable historical figures, known as ‘worthies’, which included the politician George Canning, the writers Samuel Johnson (National Portrait Gallery, London) and John Milton (untraced), and the scientist Sir Isaac Newton (National Portrait Gallery, London). These were presumably first displayed at Vernon’s mansion at 50 Pall Mall, London, although only the bust of Milton was noted by the journal Art Union when they reviewed Vernon’s collection in 1839
