One of New Yorks most enduring monuments is the Statue of Liberty (188486), the famous gift from France on the occasion of the first centennial of the United States. Known affectionately as Lady Liberty, the sculpture by Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi (French, 18341904), Liberty Enlightening the World, raises her torch in New York Harbor, serving as a symbol of Franco-American friendship.
Our reproduction of the Statue of Liberty (188486) is based on a bronzed terracotta Liberty (1875) in the Museums collection, which belongs to an edition of terracottas cast after a preliminary “committee model.” This early model was produced for donors of the funds needed to build the statues huge base in New York, and there are several differences in composition between it and the iconic statue as finally realized. Our reduced-scale reproduction was created with a combination of three- dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques. Bonded bronze. Hand patinated. 13 3/4”H x 5 1/2”W x 5”D.
