I've started the research and it's like being back at school but actually having a ball.   Joy and rapture.

This picture was taken at the place of the epiphany - the Chatsworth Sculpture gallery - and though I have ambled through here dissecting the minutiae I had never spotted this small window of delight:

The note below - I had hoped to be able to read it from the photo - records them as being used by Canova in December 1802.   No doubt given by the sculptor to the 6th Duke of Devonshire.   Such a subtle location too.
