This is a commentary drawn out of the 15 July 1850 issue of The Critic, WMR's review of the Royal Academy's current exhibition. DGR did not know the celebrated Italian sculptor, Baron Carlo Marocheeti of Vaux (1805-1867), who exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy after 1848, when he fled to England during the 1848 revolution. He became a celebrated figure in London and was patronized by the Queen and Prince Albert.
First published as part of WMR's 15 July 1850 notice in
The Critic of the Royal Academy's current exhibition. It was later collected by WMR in his edition of 1911.
