Description

Olin Warner received his training at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1869-72. When he returned to America, he struggled initially to make a living as a sculptor, but gradually obtained a reputation for his finely modeled portrait busts and medallions. His personal style combined the elegance and careful modeling of the traditional Beaux-Arts style with a more restrained, classical sensibility. The subject of this bust, Maude Morgan, was a New York musician. Warner is credited with popularizing low-relief sculpture in America through such commissions as his heroic bronze doors for the Library of Congress of 1896.
