Historical Artist - Bartolomeo Cavaceppi (1716 - 1799)

Bartolomeo Cavaceppi was trained as a sculptor and was admitted to the Accademia di San Luca in 1732. He established a large workshop in Rome. He was appointed to restore the antiquity collection of Cardinal Albani in 1734, a position that brought him many commissions. Cavaceppi also worked as a restorer for the pope at the Museo Clementino and published three volumes of his restored and collected engravings. At the time of his death, the collection of fragments and casts in the Museo was vast. Prince Giovanni Torlonia purchased over a thousand items from Cavaceppi's legacy. For his contributions in the formation of the Museo Clementino, based in large part on Albani's collection, Cavaceppi was made a Knight of the Golden Spur in 1770.
