The 'colossal' marble bust of Napoleon (b. 15 August 1769) by Canova, possibly 1803-06. Canova kept it in his bedroom in Rome until his death in 1822, after which Anne, Marchioness of Abercorn acquired it, leaving it to the 6th Duke of Devonshire in her will. The bust remains at Chatsworth exactly where the 6th Duke had it placed, in the centre of the Sculpture Gallery there.
