Although George IV spent lavishly on furniture for Carlton House, he also made use of the historic royal collections, including this eighteenth-century sculpture. The appeal of this piece may have been in its martial subject. It was displayed on the Principal Floor, placed, as here, on this secretaire by Levasseur. 

Probably purchased in 1755; first recorded in Carlton House in 1812
