Rudy, This statue is not the one of Fanny Lear, it is the one of Napoleon's sister Pauline Borghese. Fanny Lear's statue was made according to this one. The one  I saw in the Museum of Fine Arts is very different - Fanny Lear does not have a crown on her head. Although the description says that it is Fanny Lear, really I am sure it is not. In fact they say that it this is in  the collection of Youssupof Palace, and this is true, it is a very small statue and it is on a mantel in a corridor.
