It also reflects developments in portrait sculpture under Bernini and is the most advanced piece of baroque classicism executed in England. It bears a strong resemblance to the Imperial prototypes of the bearded and mantled Marcus Aurelius and Septimus Severus. The deep undercutting and drilling of the hair and collar, and the deeply pouched eyes are characteristic of Dieussart's work. This large-scale bust may well have been intended for the galleries at Arundel House.
