On 29 April 2015, I wrote in this blog about the bust of Lady Mansfield by Roubiliac. I illustrated the piece with the best photographs available to me at the time, but recently I had the opportunity to visit Kenwood House, Hampstead, North London and to take photographs of the Roubiliac bust of Lady Mansfield, the bust of Lord Mansfield by Nollekens of 1779 and the bust of Homer by Joseph Wilton.

This plaster is a cast from another bust by Nollekens, undated but certainly authentic, at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, which has slightly different drapery. J T Smith wrote that the moulds of Nollekens’s busts of Johnson (No 4) and Mansfield were sold in 1823 to James Deville, plaster worker and phrenologist in The Strand, and Sarti may have used the same moulds.
