Fortune


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This figure, symbolizing Fortune, was one of the French sculptor Moreau-Vauthier's most famous works. It was originally exhibited in an almost life-size version in 1878, and due to the work's success, it was replicated in many different materials, including ivory and bronze. This porcelain version is marked with the date 1900, and it is likely that Henry Walters purchased it from the Exposition Universelle in Paris that year. Versions of this sculpture in ivory were owned by Henry's contemporaries, Mary J. Morgan and William H. Vanderbilt.
