Laurent Delvaux (1696, Ghent – 24 February 1778, Nivelles) was a Flemish sculptor. After a successful international career that brought him to London and Rome, he returned to the Austrian Netherlands where he was a sculptor to the court. Delvaux was a transitional figure between the Baroque and Neo-classicism.
Delvaux created a series of twelve busts of Roman emperors in the Warandepark in Brussels which have been display there permanently since 1782. They are aranged around a fountain, carved out of white marble each with their armour in a jasper-coloured marble. The sculptures are almost unrecognizable as their faces have weathered quite drastically but it is presumed that this piece depicted Caligula.
