An eighteenth-century copy of the Hellenistic sculpture in the Uffizi, Florence. This statue was one of several brought from Europe by Henry Fiennes Pelham-Clinton, the 9th Earl of Lincoln (later the 2nd Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyme) who built the grotto in the grounds of Oatlands House in about 1770. This Venus stood at the head of the bath in the Bath Room in the Grotto and remained there until presented to the museum.
