Galleria Accademia Overview
9th Room: Salone dell’Ottocento
The largest part of the artworks displayed within this immense room are from the interesting collection of plasters, models or formations created by the Tuscan sculptor Lorenzo Bartolini (1777-1850). Most of them are plasters, models or formations from his original marble sculptures. This fact was particularly due to the intense activity of Bartolini who - besides the Bonaparte family who used to commit him their marble portraits, busts, as well as an ample variety of sculptures - was one of the preferred sculptors of the Italian and foreign nobility. The “Salone dell’Ottocento” hosts 94 works by Lorenzo Bartolini.
By the celebrated Florentine sculptor Luigi Pampaloni (1791-1847) this room preserves 20 plasters coming from his creation of imposing sculptured groups, statues, busts and portraits devoted to little children and adolescents, which were mainly entrusted to him by Italian Institutions, by exponents of the high society, as well as by the Bonaparte family.
