Title: Marianne, Lady Clifford Constable (1800-62)
Item Name: Sculpture

Description:

This item is in the Burton Constable Hall collections and is included on this database by kind permission of the Burton Constable Foundation. An Italian neoclassical sculptor, Lorenzo Bartolini established a reputation in Paris under the patronage of Napoleon I. After the fall of Napoleon, Bartolini settled in Florence and Marianne, Lady Clifford Constable may have sat for him during her stay in Italy in 1837. With no supporting documentary evidence, the portrait can only be attributed on stylistic grounds. However, as Bartolini was famed for his skilful rendition of elaborate coiffures, the attribution is a convincing one. Located in the Staircase Hall. Attributed to Lorenzo Bartolini (1777-1850)
