"Love Dominating The World" (William H. Buckler)

Date:
1868
Creator:
Pasquale Romanelli, (1822-1887)

The head of the allegorical figure of Love is a portrait of Little Willie Buckler (1867-1953), the son of Eliza "Didy" Ridgely White Buckler (1828-1894) and her second husband Dr. Thomas Hepburn Buckler (1812-1901). Although originally believed to by American expatriate sculptor William H Rinehart, Willie himself said that it was sculpted “…in Italy by Romanelli.” The Florentine sculptor Pasquale Romanelli (1822-1887) had earlier completed portraits of Willie’s older half-brothers Henry and Julian White.
