Happy Children

Artist:
Chaim Gross, born Wolowa, Austria 1904-died New York City 1991
Founder:
Bedi-Makky Art Foundry Corp.
Medium:
bronze
Dimensions:
66 x 49 1/4 x 40 in. (167.5 x 125.1 x 101.6 cm.)
Type:
Sculpture
Date:
1973
Description:
Chaim Gross grew up in a large and loving Jewish family with ten brothers and sisters. When he was very young, Gross saw his parents nearly beaten to death for their religious beliefs by Cossack soldiers. As an adult, he compensated for this trauma by sculpting large families, as in Happy Children, which shows two small children emulating the adults who dance with them. The larger figures and the ring of bronze symbolically protect the children, as Gross's parents had been unable to do.

Sleeping Children

Artist:
William Henry Rinehart, born Union Bridge, MD 1825-died Rome, Italy 1874
Medium:
marble
Dimensions:
15 3/8 x 36 3/4 x 18 3/4 in. (38.9 x 93.3 x 47.6 cm.)
Type:
Sculpture
Date:
modeled 1859, carved 1869
Description:
William Henry Rinehart's marble sculpture of two sleeping children beautifully captures a peaceful moment in time. An anonymous visitor to the artist's studio at the time reported that Rinehart sculpted the children from life as they napped, allowing him to render their ringlets and chubby hands in exquisite detail. Nineteenth-century artists used sleeping figures to evoke death, and images like this often served as grave markers. An early replica of Sleeping Children can be found in Green Mount Cemetery in Baltimore, on the family plot of the artist's patron and friend, Hugh Sisson.
