The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Portrayed are War bearing a sword, Pestilence holding a quiver of arrows, Famine clutching an empty bowl, and Death with a scythe. This bronze was intended to be exhibited at the National Sculpture Society Exhibition in 1929, but because of a delay in casting, it was not entered although it is in the catalogue. It is a sketch intended for a large-scale public sculpture. 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.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1931, by purchase [from the artist]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Signature] Schuler, 29
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1931
