"Pegasus and Bellerophon, " Lovely, Belle Epoch Gilded Bas Relief Panel by Gelert

About the Item

This lovely depiction of Bellerophon and Pegasus, the nude God holding the head of the winged horse, beautifully captures a Classic Greek mythological scene in sculpted bas relief. The artist, Johannes Gelert, finished the relief in old gold gilding, and framed it in oak. Gelert was born in Denmark and immigrated to America, where he exhibited widely and created a wide array of monuments and memorials in New York, Chicago, Nashville, Minneapolis and Cincinnati. This unique sculpture was given by Gelert to the wife of Conrad Rossi-Diehl, who was a good friend of the artist. Conrad was an artist and educator who was born in Germany and later settled in Philadelphia.

  • "Algernon Sullivan Plaque, " Rare Bas Relief with Nude Figures by Jules Roine
    By Jules-Edouard Roiné 1
    Located in Philadelphia, PA
    This rare and important relief sculpture honors Algernon Sydney Sullivan, one of the most admired and respected attorneys and civic leaders active in New York in the late 19th century. Born a Hoosier, he moved to New York by 1860, and though an ardent abolitionist, felt honor-bound to step forward to defend the sailors of the Confederate ship Savannah, captured by the Union early in the Civil War. He served in the public sector for a decade and fought the Tweed gang. Later, Sullivan created two of the more important and influential law firms in New York in his era -- one of them, Sullivan and Cromwell, continues today -- but he always remained supportive of the poor who could not afford to retain an attorney for legal assistance. In his honor, the Sullivan Fountain was erected in Van Cortlandt...
