Peter Turnerelli (1774 - 1839)
Model for an equestrian statue of King George III
Museum number: M873
Soane probably acquired this model from the sculptor; it was in Soane's collection by 1822 when it appears in a watercolour by J.M. Gandy, P113, placed on top of a cupboard in what is today the Colonnade. By c.1829-30 it had moved to the Dome Area where it is shown in later views.
