Raffaelle Monti

Raffaelle Monti

Raffaelle Monti (1818-1881) was born in Milan, Italy. He studied under his father the noted sculptor Gaetano Matteo Monti. By way of Vienna and Milan, he came to London in 1848, and settled there.

He exhibited at the Royal Academy, and Monti soon earned recognition for his piece for the Duke of Devonshire, the "Veiled Vestal." A bust based on this work, cast in Parian porcelain by Copeland, was issued in 1861 by the Crystal Palace Art Union.

Monti produced sculptures working in marble, but he also created in metals, porcelain, marble and remained active in the applied arts.
