Pasquale Romanelli

Pasquale Romanelli (1812-1887) was a pupil of Luigi Pampaloni and Lorenzo Bartolini in Florence. He subsequently became Bartolini’s collaborator and continued his studio on the latter’s death. Romanelli achieved notoriety in his own right, executing numerous public monuments in his native Italy, as well as exhibiting both in Paris and London. He was particularly renowned for his sensuous treatment of mythological, allegorical and biblical female figures. Romanelli, exhibited a figure of Ruth, at the Paris Salon in 1851.
