Jeanne Catherine Offhuys in Brussels, Belgiummyminifactory.com
This is a plaster bust depicting Jeanne Catherine Offhuys, the wife of the sculptor of the piece, Gilles-Lambert Godecharle. The erotic revealing of the breasts and juxtaposition of the pure and innocent face of Jeanne can clearly show the intimate relationship between sitter and sculptor.

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.
Cicero at The Louvre, Parismyminifactory.com
This marble portrait of Cicero (Fr. Cicéron) was sculpted by Simone Biano in Loro Ciuggena (Born in Tuscany and died in Venice, 1553). The sculpture is signed in the back in Greek, translated to the artist's proper name, "Created by Simon Leikos, the Venetian". He was liberally inspired by antique busts, clearly identified by the XCI Century and much like other portraits of Cicero.
Beethoven at Central Park, New Yorkmyminifactory.com
This bust is part of a larder sculpture on permanent display at Central Park in New York. Sculpted by Henry Bearer in 1884, the bronze bust was donated by the German-American Choir Society and stands on the site of the original cast-iron bandstand that was demolished in the 1920s.
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

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.
Mummy of Syros in Ipswich Museum, UKmyminifactory.com
Gilded mummy-masks such as this appear to have been made for persons of high status in the early part of the Roman Period (from about 30 BC). Though Roman artistic traits began to influence native styles in the succeeding fifty years, the masks are still very clearly Egyptian in design.
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.

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.
Robert Stephenson bust at the National Portrait Gallery, Londonmyminifactory.com

Oliver Cromwell at the V&A, London, UKmyminifactory.com
Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658) was often represented in 18th-century British sculpture because of his central role in British history. This bust is probably based on a plaster cast of his face, made for his funeral effigy. It also shows Wilton's interest in and understanding of ancient Roman sculpture, which he had studied in Italy. Joseph Wilton was born in London, but trained in the Netherlands, France and Italy from 1744 to 1755. He was appointed Statuary to His Majesty George III in 1761, and in 1768 became a founder member of the Royal Academy. However in the same year he inherited a large legacy from his father and neglected sculpture thereafter; he went bankrupt in 1793.

He was chiefly responsible for crushing the Monmouth rebellion (lead by the Duke of Monmouth) in 1685 before leaving the opposing side lead by James II in 1688. He was rewarded with an earldom by William III.
