Bust of Willard Metcalf

ca. 1913
21 1/2 x 8 x 10 in.

Robert Ingersoll Aitken, (1878–1949)

Object Type: Sculpture
Medium and Support: Bronze
Credit Line: Florence Griswold Museum; Gift of the artist's wife, Mrs. Henriette Metcalf.

Robert Aitken's request that Metcalf sit for a portrait bust was a good measure of the painter's growing professional esteem. Upon completion, the bust was shown at an exhibition of "The Ten", where it was admired.

A photograph of the clay model for the bust appeared in the article, Elizabeth Anna Semple, "Art of Robert Aitken, Sculptor," Overland Monthly LXI, no. 13 (March 1913): 219.
