A White Marble Portrait
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Basically a self-taught painter and sculptor, Henry Dexter, 1806-1876, never saw another artist carve or model a portrait sculpture until after he had achieved his own artistic and career success with work that was realistic in intent, but classical in form and conception.

Considered a pioneer of American sculpture, Dexter completed for Mount Auburn Cemetery a memorial statue of the "Binney Child," which is thought to be the first marble statue created in America.

It was his view (showing 500 of 4052 characters).
