Biography from Pennsylvania Capitol Preservation Committee:
Roland Hinton Perry, sculptor and painter, was born in New York City. Educated in private schools, Perry entered Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1890 at the age of 19. At the age of 21, however, Perry turned his attention to the studios of the Academie Deleceuse in Paris and found sculpture to be his true talent.
Shortly after returning from his studies abroad in 1894, Perry received the commission for the series of bas-reliefs in the Library of Congress. As a result of the success in carrying out the order came the second commission in 1895 to design the Fountain of Neptune.
In 1905 Perry, now a renowned sculptor, executed the working model of the statue on the Pennsylvania Capitol dome. Capitol architect, Joseph Huston, designed and drew the specifications for the gilded bronze statue, which he called Commonwealth. Weighing three tons and standing 14 feet tall, nearly 250 feet above street level, the classically designed statue represents the ideals upon which the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania was founded.
Perry was a member of the Grand Central Art Gallery and the National Sculpture Society. Many of Perry’s paintings hang in the Detroit Museum of Art.
