Title:  

Eliza "didy" Ridgely White Buckler And William H. Buckler Ridgely
Date:
1868
Creator:
Pasquale Romanelli, (1822-1887)

Content Description: 

This charming statue shows Eliza "Didy" Ridgely White Buckler (1828-1894) holding her infant son William H. Buckler (1867-1953). In later life, Willie Buckler said that it was sculpted “…in Rome by Romanelli in the spring of 1868.” Willie, his parents, his older half-brothers Henry and Julian White, and his cousins John and Charles Ridgely had spent six months in the Eternal City beginning in late 1867. Pasquale Romanelli’s (1812-1887) principal studio was in Florence. The statue may have actually been sculpted there when the family passed through the city on their way back to Paris.
