bust, h 53.0cm × w 25.0cm × d 11.3cm More details

British ceramic manufacturer Josiah Wedgwood produced busts of the Dutch 17th-century heroes Van Oldenbarnevelt, De Witt and Michiel de Ruyter, as well as portrait medal-lions of Stadtholder Prince William V and his consort. Perhaps this series inspired De Mol’s set of smaller busts. The pedestal of this statue may have been made in the Netherlands.
