Title: Blind Love
Item Name: Sculpture

Description:

This item is in the Burton Constable Hall collections and is included on this database by kind permission of the Burton Constable Foundation. The Venetian sculptor Antonio Corradini (1668-1752) was a skilled exponent of the veiled figure in the early 18th century and Raffaelle Monti later mastered this form. Regrettably, there is no sound provenance for this work. Could it be the ‘Statue’ that was shipped out to ‘Mr Burton Constable of Hull’, from Le Havre in October 1842? Or did the family acquire the work in the late 1840s when Raffaelle Monti settled in London? Located in the Blue Drawing Room. In the manner of Raffaelle Monti (1818-81).


Year: 1840
