Little Sleeping Beauty?

(Last Updated On July 9, 2022)

Like Sleeping Beauty, Carlo Marocchetti’s little girl sleeps forever, frozen in marble.  In the throes of sleep her too-large gown has slipped off her shoulders.  Marocchetti made a name for himself sculpting mostly political and historical figures, but it is his Young Girl Sleeping (and the earlier Young Girl Playing with a Dog, which netted him a prize) that reveals his sentimental side.
