Even though this bronze clad bust is probably a reduction of a larger work, it is magnificent; it hasn’t lost any of the fine details in the cladding or reduction process. In one way it is stark in that the only features are his face and head with no embellishment of a coat, cravat, or ruffled collar. Only the pure humanity comes through this inspiring sculpture. Since there are few wrinkles, it is of a younger, less war-worn Lincoln. The sculpture stands 14 ½” tall, 7 ¼” wide at the shoulders, and 5” deep, and weights over 10 lbs. Some of the copper in the bronze has oxidized creating a few verdi gris marks on it; there are other wear marks on it, but some of these may be from the polishing of the bronze after the cladding was finished. The piece is unsigned, which is a shame, because this artist was able to capture a warmth that doesn’t come through in many bronzes. There is a wonderful patina on this piece that ranges from a warm copper to deeper bronze.
