"James Edward Pope," Very Fine Gilded Bronze Bust by Montana

About

Beautifully crafted in gilded bronze, this extraordinarily handsome portrait of a young man, 15 years of age, was sculpted by Pietro Montana in 1932. Complete with its original base indicating the name and age of the sculptor's subject, this piece virtually glows with the confidence and beauty of youth. Montana won a gold medal from the National Academy of Design, contributed to Radio City Music Hall in New York City, and sculpted a number of monuments, including the sensuous "Dawn of Glory" war memorial (1924) in Brooklyn.
