Cupid, Chatsworth and Sexy Statuary


Another engraving, this time a quite fine one, from the album of images I was talking about in my last post. This is an image of Finelli's "Love Revives Life" at Chatsworth. Having scanned it for your viewing delectation here, I then decided I would like to see a photo of the real thing. I found this one. Which in turn led me to look at Jasper Room's, the photographer's, sets which included a whole series taken in the sculpture gallery at Chatsworth - some of the best photos of statuary I've seen in a very long time. I'm particularly taken with this Bacchante and this Achilles.
