Lady Glenorchy was in Rome about 1830 with her husband, Lord Glenorchy, John Campbell. Thorvaldsen produced portrait busts of the married couple, but this bust of Lady Glenorchy cannot be identified with certainty among the preserved plaster busts at Thorvaldsen's Museum. This bust depicted here (A268), has been proposed as a portrait of the British Woman. The marble version of the bust was located, until 1925, on the Campbell couple's property south-east of Edinburgh in Scotland. Where the marble bust is today is unknown. images%2f0fb5093ad0c410af5d5b4c4f5a78b89bdc2d499d
About the author:
Thorvaldsens Museum opened on 18 September 1848 and was the first public museum building in Denmark. The characteristic museum building was built to exhibit the extensive life’s work of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) and today still looks more or less as it did when it opened over 150 years ago. Thorvaldsens Museum also contains Thorvaldsen's drawings and sketches for sculptures and reliefs. In addition Thorvaldsen was a passionate collector, so the museum also exhibits his extensive collections of paintings from his own time and collections of artworks and objects from Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity. The museum also shows changing exhibitions that go into greater depth with aspects of the permanent collections, including contemporary art.
