The 1st Duke of Wellington

Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington,
1823, Sir Frances Chantreymarble,
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

The above photo was taken by Bill, aka The Itinerant Wanderer on Flickr, who kindly let me use his picture. Below is another view from the museum’s website.


Anyway, I like this particular bust of Wellington. I wish they sold a miniature in the museum store, but I don’t think they do. Of course, I was reading ARCHITECT DESIGN™ and saw Stefan’s bust of Napoleon, which made me want to get one of Wellington.

Thanks for the comments . . .
