Pair of Bronze Statues of Minerva and Augustus, Attributed to B Boschetti

About

A pair of fine 19th-century bronze statues of Minerva and the Roman Emperor Augustus, both finely cast and patinated with a slight green tone. Both raised on their original rouge marble bases. Height including plinth 26in. ​Diameter 9in. ​Benedetto Boschetti was an Italian sculptor active between approximately 1820 and 1879. Boschetti had a workshop on the via Condotti and specialised in bronze reductions of well-known sculptures in addition to various other sculptural objects, classically inspired, such as marble, candelabra, a mosaic table in the Gilbert Collection, held within the V& A and an excellent copy of the Warwick Vase carved in rosso antico, now in the Toleo Museum, Ohio. Boschetti’s workshop exhibited at the Great Exhibition in London, 1851, where he won a prize medal. He fed the increasing demand for antique works of art and was incredibly popular amongst Grand Tourists. ​​
