|Bill Richmond (?) and I at the Getty Center, Los Angeles|
Jerry's fascinating theory is that the sculpture, credited by the Getty Museum and the Yale Center for British Art, as being the work of Francis Harwood in 1758, is actually a much later sculpture of ... yes! Bill Richmond!
Jerry's thesis is very convincing and very interesting ... check out his fascinating posts on the subject below:
Bust of a Man
Bust of a Man ... Alternate version
Bust of a Man, the Sequel - Bill Richmond Strikes Back
Meanwhile, this post contains Jerry's work on the historical background / context to his later work:
Follow the Money
And while I'm recommending further reading for you Richmondophiles out there, you should also check out another post of Jerry's: the first chapter of a novel he's writing about Bill Richmond. Well worth reading and a real appetiser for the full length novel to follow!
