"Incense Rising to Heaven," Bronze Panel with Angels by Supreme Court Sculptor

US$17,500

About

Extraordinary and unique, this gorgeous sculptural bronze panel depicting two statuesque angels swinging censors pouring out billows of incense was sculpted by Adolph Weinman for a New York installation in 1912. Born in Germany in 1870, Weinman immigrated to America as a 10 year old boy, and later studied or worked with several of the great masters of American sculpture, including August Saint-Gaudens and Daniel Chester French. Later he became one of the leading sculptors of public monuments and memorials, and is famous for his work for the Morgan Library, New York's Municipal Building, Madison Square Presbyterian Church, the state capitols in Wisconsin and Missouri, and the Elks National Memorial Headquarters in Chicago. Perhaps he is best known today for his friezes for the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C. The details in this panel are exquisite, including the tall, elegant forms of the two angels, the complex Grecian folds of their drapery, and the fine feathery surface of their wings. The panel is signed with Weinman's monogram and is dated.
