Bartolini at V&A

The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh have jointly acquired Lorenzo Bartolini's The Campbell Sisters Dancing a Waltz (c.1821) for £500,000. The uncle of Emma and Julia Campbell, the 6th Duke of Argyll, is thought to have commissioned the sculpture from Bartolini in 1821 for about £500. This charming work goes on display for the first time at the V&A until 20 November. It then travels to the Scottish National Gallery, where it will be on display for the next 7 years. So view it while you can (CLICK).
