  • Overview

  • Further Information
Several busts of Franklin were attributed by their owners to Ceracchi late in the 18th century or early in the 19th century. While some may have been the work of other sculptors of the period, they share the characteristics of Ceracchi's image of Franklin, and show the regard in which that artist was held by contemporaries.
