The DREAM OF HORACE by Sir Richard Westmacott (1775-1856). Exhibited at the Academy in 1823 and subsequently installed in its present position within a blocked-up window. The subject of Westmacott's relief is unusual, and was chosen by the 3rd Earl of Egremont. Taken from Horace's Ode to Calliope (the muse of poetry), Odes iii,4, it depicts a sleeping boy protected by Venus, Minerva and Apollo against wild animals.
