Bust of Henry Walters


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This bust was commissioned in 1930 shortly after the bronze version [WAM 28.5] and derives from the same plaster model. It was intended as a pendant to the marble bust of William T. Walters, Henry's father, by Rinehart [WAM 28.9]. Schuler, a native of Lorraine (in present-day France), was raised in Baltimore and attended the School of Art and Design at the Maryland Institute. He received the Rinehart Prize, enabling him to study in Paris. After receiving awards at the Paris Salon, Schuler returned to Baltimore, where he pursued a highly successful career as the city's leading sculptor and founded the Schuler School of Fine Art.
Conservation

The bust had been in storage for many years. The surface was cleaned using erasers, cosmetic sponges and swabs dampened using citrate solution buffered to pH 10-11 to remove dirt and grime.
