The Vestal

After a marble figure by Clodion (Claude Michel) French

Not on view

The model for this figure is a marble sculpture in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. The marble differs only slightly from this version, such as in the extended fingers on the Vestal's left hand. A signed terracotta, dated as early as 1765, was in the Alexander Stroganoff sale of 1931.
