The workshop of Benedetto Boschetti (1820-1870) was renowned for the exceptional quality of its marble work ‘after the antique'. From his premises at 74 via Condotti in Rome, Boschetti supplied extremely high quality works of art to satisfy the demand for high quality works of art with an antique theme created by an influx of tourists on the Grand Tour with academic and sophisticated tastes. His work was widely praised and he was awarded a medal at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London. The most celebrated examples of his work today are a mosaic table depicting the Triumph of Cupid in the Gilbert Collection, London, and a fine reduction of the Warwick Vase in rosso antico now in the Toledo Museum, Ohio.
