Allegory of Justice


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Justice is depicted here as a slightly draped man, seated, wearing a helmet. This piece is said to be a reduction of a work commissioned for the Essex County Court House, Newark, New Jersey. The artist wrote in a letter to the Walters Art Museum in 1940: "I think I made them ["Inspiration" (WAM 54.692) and "Justice"] in 1903, that they belong to Mr. Hebrard, Rue Royale, Paris, and were by him sold to Mr. Walters in 1906. They are the original studies for other works and there are no other copies in existence."
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1903, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Signature] O'CONNOR; [Stamp] CIRE PERDUE. A A HERBRARD
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1917 (?)
