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

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

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