Born in Antwerp and formed in the Netherlands, Rysbrack has an important career in Great Britain since 1725. He excels in funerary monuments and portraitures in bust. In the 1740s, he performed a series of portraits of the most famous Flemish artists of the Baroque period, including our painters and the sculptor Duquesnoy. Our two bronzes seem to have been casted later and grouped in pairs in the middle of the 19th century, like the versions conserved at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
