The Farnese Flora, at 3.42 metres one of the most monumental of all the antiquities of Rome, was much copied on a reduced scale both in marble and bronze, notably by Rysbrack at Stourhead (Haskell and Penny, op. cit., fig. 43). The fact that the left hand in this version is shown holding a chaplet proves that it dates from before 1819, by which date Tagliolini had turned the hand outwards and replaced the chaplet with a nosegay (Haskell and Penny, op. cit., fig. 113). The 'Flora di Farnese' features in the sale catalogue of small bronzes by Giovanni Zoffoli, which is datable to around 1794-6, and is recorded as having cost 18 zecchini (Haskell and Penny, op. cit., p. 342).
