Fame and Friendship: Pope, Roubiliac, and the Portrait Bust (Catalog)
Title: Fame and Friendship: Pope, Roubiliac, and the Portrait Bust
Author: Malcolm Baker
Abstract: Already frequently used to represent authors in antiquity, portrait busts became the most familiar and widely disseminated images celebrating famous writers during the eighteenth century. No literary figure was more esteemed than the poet Alexander Pope, and his sculpted portraits exemplify the celebration of literary fame at a period when authorship was being newly conceived, and the portrait bust was enjoying new popularity. This exhibition explored the convergence between authorship, portraiture, and the sculpted image in particular by bringing together a wide range of works that foregrounded Pope’s celebrity status.
