Photographs of the Sotheby's Marble and the Grimsthorpe Castle Terracotta Busts of Handel by Roubiliac for Comparison.


Malcolm Baker had problems with this bust but I can find no reason to doubt the authorship of the Sotheby bust.

My blog entries on the subject should be enough to convince any doubters

  1. I have never seen some of these busts before. The terracotta from Grimsthorpe Castle is absolutely amazing, like seeing the real Handel in a snapshot of time. Is this on public display, do you know?
