Patinated Bronze Figurative Works by American Sculptors Lead John Moran’s Upcoming SaleSep 21, 2022 15:00 EDT
American sculptor Glenna Maxey Goodacre (1939 – 2020) was renowned for designing the obverse of the Sacagawea dollar, introduced in 2000 in the United States. She also designed the momentous Vietnam Women’s Memorial in Washington, D. C. The memorial is dedicated to the American women and nurses who served in the Vietnam War. Goodacre was best known for such large-scale bronze figurative works. One of her significant patinated bronze sculptures, Crossing the Prairie, is a key highlight of the upcoming auction from John Moran. It was commissioned to commemorate the spearheading women in the American West. J. Seward Johnson Jr’s patinated bronze work titled Allow Me is equally noteworthy. It is designed with aluminum and fabricated stainless steel. Also known as Umbrella Man, the sculpture is part of the famed Allow Me series. It portrays a life-sized man wearing a business suit and holding an umbrella as he hails a cab.
A Fratelli Lisi e Figli stag centerpiece also leads the listings. The sterling silver lot features a dish fashioned with an oak leaf and acorn border. The lid is designed with a seated stag with gilt antlers. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare and browse other online auctions.
