Catalogue Note

'Other sculpture includes a startling carved stone Torso by Cecil Howard', New York Times,‎ October 24, 1937

The Burgundy stone version of this dynamic model was displayed in the American Pavillon at the 1937 Paris Exposition Universelle, and was awarded a Grand Prix. The twist in the upper torso creates a particularly engaging study, which recalls antiquities such as the Belvedere Torso in the Vatican Museums and the Barberini Faun in the Glyptothek, Munich, refer F. Haskell and N. Penny, Taste and the Antique, New Haven and London, 1981, pp. 202-205, 311-314, nos. 33, 80.
