Description:
Carlo Marochetti ITALIAN SIR JAMSETJEE JEJEEBHOY, FIRST BARONET (1783 - 1859) 1805-1868 bronze, dark brown patina 45 by 24 by 35cm., 17¾ by 9½ by 13¾ in. Provenance Formerly in the collection of the High Commission of India Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy (1783-1859) was a Parsee businessman who made his fortune by dealing in textiles and opium. Known for being a benefactor, he was responsible for the founding of a hospital and a school, amongst others. A lifesize marble of the present model of Sir Jamsetjee, completed in 1858, is in the Old Town Hall in Mumbai. The present bronze is a reduction of a statue which can still be seen on the Veer Nariman Road in Mumbai, which was formerly loaned to the Vicotria and Albert Museum (1868-1934). A smaller version is at the Sir JJ Hospital. Sir Jamsetjee received his baronetcy from Queen Victoria, who can be seen on the medal pinned to his chest. The Marochetti foundry was not known for casting bronzes of this size. It is therefore possible that the present bronze was cast by Morel Ladeuil, who is known to have worked on one of Marochetti's smaller bronzes of this model. A bronze version of Sir Jamsetjee, described as 'Statuette of Sir Jamsetjee Jejebehoy [sic], seated in a chair' was sold as part of the contents of Marochetti's studio after his death in 1868 (Christie, Manson and Woods, 7 May 1868, lot 89), but as there is no image nor measurements included in this entry, there is no way of determining whether this is the same object as the present bronze.

BARON CARLO MAROCHETTI (ITALIAN 1805-1867)
QUEEN VICTORIA ON HORSEBACK
Bronze, signed, on moulded wooden plinth base
55cm (21.7in) wide, 50cm (19.7in) high

Exhibited: The Noble Horse, The Bunkamura Museum of
Art, Tokyo, September 2-October 22, 2000, no. 87.

Note: This bronze reduction of the Monument to Queen Victoria in George Square, Glasgow, records Marochetti's original composition as it was at the time of its inauguration in St. Vincent Place in 1854. The left hind leg is lifted off the ground as it is in the reproduction in the Illustrated London News (16th Sept. 1854). An account in the Building Chronicle dating to the same month and a newly discovered photograph of a working plaster model in the E. Gillick collection at the Henry Moore Institute also record this feature. Marochetti altered the leg to sit flush with the ground in a reworking dating to 1866-8, at the time of its relocation.

C. Marochetti. 1858
white marble, on red veined marble socle and black stonebase
CATALOGUE NOTE
Baron Carlo Marochetti was one of the most flamboyant andaccomplished sculptors of the mid nineteenth-century. Heestablished his career in France and came to England as a maturesculptor after the revolution of 1848 and the exile of the Frenchking, Louis Philippe. To the chagrin of the English sculpturalestablishment, Marochetti's royal and aristocratic connections,combined with his highly accomplished techniques, soon assured himthe most high profile public commissions.
In the present bust we see the sculptor in a more intimate mood.The gaze of his subject is frank and open and her hair swept upneatly but informally. The strong structure of the face, with itscarefully defined brows and defined nose, surely represents a womanof strong character. The bust was not exhibited at the RoyalAcademy and most probably represents one of his friends, a memberof his close-knit London circle.

BARON CARLO MAROCHETTI (1805-1867) - AN EQUESTRIAN GROUP OF EMMANUEL PHILIBERT, DUKE OF SAVOY -
Mis: 57 by 42cm., 22½ by 16½in.
signed: Marochetti inscribed: Susse Edits bronze, dark brown patina

CATALOGUE NOTE
This is a reduction of the statue in the Piazza S. Carlo in Turin of 1837-38, which was arguably Marochetti's most important work. Of Italian origin, French Beaux-Arts training, and subsequent domicile in England from 1849, Marochetti's 'patriotic delinquency' got him into trouble, for instance when working on statues of Napoleon and Wellington at the same time.
