MAROCHETTI (Carlo, Baron, 1805-1867, Italian-born Sculptor, R.A.)

Autograph Letter Signed 'C Marochetti' to 'My dear Aran', telling him not to "fear any mistake about the bas reliefs of the Queen's statue. I am not yet ready to cast them and I will not finish the moulds without showing them to the Committee. As to the Statue of Sir Rt Peel, if it is given to Hoffman[?] I will have the greatest pleasure in assisting him in any way, if I can enable him to do a good statue, if he required my advice and the documents I have in my hands. If I have no work occupying my men and my foundry when his model is completed I shall be glad to give him the disposal of them and he will not be in a difficulty, because the foundry of Mr Robinson in Pimlico will always be a resource to him, in case I could not give him much assistance. I hope I shall see you soon. I am finishing my models in order to be taking some holydays, which I deserve, you may be sure of it! Remember me to our dear freinds ...", 4 sides 8vo., Brompton, 22nd August
