John Flaxman (1755 - 1826), sculptor
Medallion portrait of the sculptor's wife, Anne ('Nancy') Flaxman (née Denman), (a pair with A21).
Museum number: A19
This medallion had a pair, a self-portrait of John Flaxman (Soane A21, now missing). This pair were almost certainly early coloured models for Wedgwood. There is a second pair, given to Soane by Flaxman himself, which hang on the staircase and are in pristine white plaster framed and glazed (SC26 and SC27).
