Sculpture

 

A wide collection of 18th- to 19th-century sculptures can also be found throughout the rooms of Redwood. The subjects range from classical personages to figures in American history and art.


Among Redwood's favorite pieces are the treasured "American School Boy" by Joseph Mozier, the Bishop triptych donated by the Reverend Dr. Andrew Chalmers Wilson, and "Transition"   by William Greene Turner.


Sculptures currently on display include a marble bust of Paris by Canova, a William Wetmore Story statuette of William Shakespeare, "Pheidippides, Soldier of Marathon," by Jean-Pierre Cortot and a copy of Jean-Antoine Houdon's "George Washington," which is displayed outside by the Redwood Summer House.
