Valente Celle Tomb, 1893, The Staglieno Cemetery, Genoa - Italy

Sculptor: Giulio Monteverde (Bistagno, Alessandria, 1837 - Roma 1917)

The funeral monument called “Eternal Drama” represents a real Dans macabre, the futile attempt of life to escape the inevitable embrace of death. The sculptor Giulio Monteverde underlines, in this sculpture, the contrast between the sensuality of the beautiful young woman who personifies Life (caught in the moment in which , wearied by the vain struggle, she is about to surrender herself to the terrible spectre who has chosen her as his prey) and the rigid impassiveness of Death which seizes her. http://grabschonheiten.diary.ru/p81440998.htm?oam

The marriage resulted in nine children, forty-two grandchildren, and eighty-eight great-grandchildren. Many of the Royal Houses bore their descendants, making Victoria the “grandmother of Europe.”

The Queen is wearing eighteenth-century dress (with the ribbon and star of the Garter), her hair powdered and crowned with a diadem and a fan in her right hand. On 6 June 1845 a masked ball was held at Buckingham Palace and the Queen had recorded in her Journal that she had herself ‘coiffée [her hair styled] like the other day, with powder…with a diadem…I had myself sketched by 2 painters’.
Inscribed on the back with the names of the artist and sitter and the date, 4 June 1845.
