Nicely Patinated Bronze Sculpture by Noted Artist Fred Schumm

About

A nice signed bronze on a stone base by the noted NJ artist Fred Schumm. It is signed on the bronze base. Well executed. A brief insight into the artist may be gleaned from this 2012 article from a NJ newspaper: Gloucester TWP. Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery will present works by the late Cherry Hill sculptor Frederick Schumm in the show “Retrospective” starting March 21. Schumm was a native of Colorado Springs, Colo., who served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II. Driven by an interest in whittling and sculpture, he used G.I. Bill funds to develop his talents with study at the Colorado Institute of Fine Arts. In the early 1960s, he developed an original method for casting small bronzes at the same time that he was designing and helping to construct a sculptural playground for the Colorado Springs Parks Department. The playground pieces were featured in "Woman’s Day" magazine and can viewed online at you tube. His bronze-casting innovations led to his receipt of a Fulbright Scholarship and two years of study in Florence, Italy. Upon his return to the United States, Schumm lived in New York City and continued to create. He designed fine jewelry for Tiffany & Co. and some of his pieces remained on display at the store decades later. He also sold a bronze piece, which had been shown at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, to Macy’s. Works by Schumm are viewable at other sites throughout the United States and Europe and a bronze of his was in the private collection of noted British sculptor Henry Moore at the time of Moore’s death. After moving to Cherry Hill, Schumm took art classes at Camden County College and often showed his sculptures as part of group exhibitions in the campus gallery. Works by Schumm and wife Lois Lewis Schumm, who is a painter and printmaker, were the subject of a two-artist show there in 2002. He also exhibited at New York City’s Sculpture Center, Philadelphia’s Medici Gallery, Cherry Hill’s Studio Gallery and Marlton’s Center for the Arts of South Jersey and donated pieces to Camden County College’s permanent collection. He died at age 85 in 2010. “Retrospective” will open with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. March 21 and continue through April 13. Admission to the reception and the show is free. The Marlin Gallery is located inside Lincoln Hall on the College’s Blackwood Campus at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road. Regular hours are 1 to 3 p.m. tuesday through thursday.
