La Capresses des Colonies
In his unpublished memoirs Charles Cordier cites the law of April 27, 1848 that abolished slavery in France and its colonies, writing: “My art incorporated the reality of a whole new subject, the revolt against slavery and the birth of anthropology.” In pioneering ethnography as a subject for sculpture in the nineteenth century, Cordier aimed to illustrate what he described as “the idea of the universality of beauty.” His busts often paired couples of the opposite sex but of the same race. This rare instance of matched busts of women was desired by the purchaser, a gaming club in Marseilles, that also commissioned the sumptuous Second-Empire pedestals from Cordier.
The busts revel in the period taste for polychromy in sculpture, an international phenomenon sparked by artistic debates about the painting of ancient statuary and inspired by ancient Roman and Renaissance sculpture composed of variously colored marbles. On a trip to Algeria in 1856 Cordier discovered onyx deposits in recently reopened ancient quarries and began to use the stone in busts such as these. He ingeniously fitted enameled bronze heads into the vibrantly patterned stone, creating exciting though costly representations of Africans that appealed to the highest levels of European society.

Occasionally a costume will not only be reused in another production, but it will be utilized on the same actor. In this instance, the Roman armor was appropriate to both productions. It appears both times on actor Francis de Wolff, first in the 1964 film Carry On Cleo, where he plays the character of Agrippa. He wore it again the very next year in the 1965 episode of Doctor Who entitled The Myth Makers, in which he plays Agamemnon. The episode is unfortunately one of the Doctor Who serials that is still missing.
Something interesting to note about this costume is that it almost certainly was made for the Fox Studio film Cleopatra, which starred Elizabeth Taylor. It is not yet known if the costume appeared in the final cut of the film, but it matches very closely in style the other garments that are seen on screen. The Carry On series frequently reused costumes from the very films that they were trying to parody. Many costumes from Cleopatra were used for Carry On Cleo just as many pieces from Anne of the Thousand Days were used in Carry On Henry.
