Catalogue Note

The present work was acquired directly from the artist by American artist Jo Davidson (1883-1952) a sculptor of Russian Jewish descent.  He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts where he became close friends with John Duncan Fergusson and Anne Estelle Rice who were working in Paris at the time, executing busts of them both.  He returned to the United States where he enjoyed a successful career and was commissioned to design the United States War Industries badge as well as numerous busts of war leaders including Eisenhower.
