Biography   Charles Hazeltine


Charles Hazeltine kept an art and music store in New Bedford, Massachusetts.  He had a fine taste in engravings and invented a colored plaster.  In 1873, he purchased a replica of the Narcissus statue, an anatomically detailed nude statue discovered in Pompeii in 1862, housed at the Naples Museum, and displayed it in the front window of his shop.  This so offended the general public that he was arrested.  The case went to trial but Hazeltine was released after the jury could not come to an unanimous decision. He left New Bedford, moving to Providence and Pawtucket, Rhode Island, where he continued to develop his plaster work, the secret of which died with him.

He also edited a book called Narcissus.
