Chronological List of the Roubiliac Portrait Busts First Draught






The Portrait Busts of Louis Francois Roubiliac.
Chronological List
First Draught.


This list was initially derived from A Biographical Dictionary of Sculptors in Britain, 1660-1851. Edited and Enlarged.

The numbers on the left refer to the entries in the Website of the Henry Moore Foundation.

Unfortunately the online version is not entirely reliable - hopefully this online list will put things right.

57. – 1733 - Marshal Turenne. Untraced.

58. – 1733 - Prince de Condé.  Untraced.

These busts are mentioned in the periodical Le Pour et le Contre, XIV of November 1733, p.329. published in England by Abbe Prevost.

"M. Le Duc d’Argyle fait faire deux buste en marbre , l’un du Grande Conde, l’autre du Mal de Turenne. Il nempoi point M. Rysbrack, mais les connoisseursm’estiment pas moinsla main de M. Roubiliac, jeune Francais Eleve et digne imiateur du celebre Coustou".

see Figured in Marble, Malcom Baker. V & A Studies. pub 2000. p.153.


The drawing in the Harris Art Gallery Preston by Joseph Nollekins, probably drawn in the Roubiliac  in St Martins Lane studio at the time of his posthumous sale and published in Figured in Marble as Turenne, is not of of Turenne but of Oliver Cromwell (the terracotta in the British Museum).
