These sculptures once stood in the Circular Room of Carlton House. They are bronze reductions of the large marble sculptures created for Louis XV for the Château de Marly, near Versailles, which were much admired for their dynamic forms. There was an added appeal for the Prince Regent in their association with the ancien regime.

Purchased in 1813
