Nereid Reclining on a Wave


Description Provenance Inscription Credit

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.
