Information

Henry Blundell had also commissioned Albacini to produce a copy of a colossal marble head of Lucius Verus in 1776. He was introduced to Albacini by another famous art collector, Charles Townley. Blundell wrote about this bust in his ‘Account of the Statues, Busts etc. at Ince’: ‘There is something very grand and noble in the character of this bust which denotes a great man’.
