This is a preparatory modello for a marble bust that Xavery made of the 22-year-old Prince William IV. Three years later, it was followed by a bust of Princess Anne of England, whom William IV married in 1734. Both marble busts were placed in the Oranjezaal (Orange Hall) at Huis ten Bosch, the royal couple’s residence near The Hague.
