After Thomas Ball (American, 1819-1911) Bronze portrait statue of American statesman, constitutional lawyer and renowned orator Daniel Webster (1782-1852). Circa late 19th century. Amazingly Ball modeled this portrait statue prior to receiving any formal training in sculpture. Ball admired the great orator and was inspired to create this full-length statuette a year after Webster’s death. Despite the mid-19th-century taste for Neoclassicism, Ball rendered his figure with decided naturalism. Webster stands assuredly with his right hand tucked Napoleon-like into his lapel, yet Ball likewise portrayed the senator’s rumpled clothing and round waistline. A commercial success, Daniel Webster was one of the earliest sculptures in the U.S. to be patented and mass-produced. The artwork later inspired two monumental versions, one of which stands in Central Park in New York.
Unsigned. Measures about 30.5in height x 11in width x 7in depth. Condition: Some overall varying degrees of patination from age as you would expect from a piece this age.
