Description Provenance Credit
Description In the late 18th century Benjamin Franklin was a popular celebrity, especially in France. This resulted in a demand for his likeness that was met by a host of images in various materials and sizes - from costly marble to cheap prints. The Museum also has in its collection a very similar version in terracotta. This piece is modelled in plaster.
