Portrait Bust of William T. Walters

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This portrait bust was modelled after a marble bust of William T. Walters (Walters 28.9). Here, bronze brings out the texture of the skin and makes you wonder what he is thinking. This object is part of a group of bronzes that was commissioned in 1889 and cast in France. They were made to be slightly smaller than the original marble version. A much larger copy was commissioned in 1907 to be placed over the entrance to the gallery, where it can be seen to this day.
