The Rysbrack Busts at Windsor Castle
The Royal Collection Photographs by John Wesley Livingston, 1874
Of the eleven terracotta busts that Rysbrack completed for Queen Caroline’s library at St James’s Palace only three survive: Edward the Black Prince (RCIN 37067), Edward VI (RCIN 53346) and Queen Elizabeth I (RCIN 45101). The others were destroyed, and this one partially damaged, in 1906 when the shelf on which they stood collapsed. The busts had been moved to the Orangery at Windsor Castle in 1825 when Queen Caroline’s library at St James’s Palace in London was demolished.
