About the Artist

Stanley Bleifeld
Stanley Bleifeld has been an artist in the public eye since the 1950's. In 1967, the Bridgeport Sunday Post art critic wrote, "The name Stanley Bleifeld and sculpture are synonymous." Widespread public recognition came from the 1964 World's Fair Vatican Pavilion's commission of a five-part bronze relief. A Life Magazine picture and article kept him before the public eye. More recently, Bleifeld was selected from hundreds of American sculptors to create a national monument for the U.S. Navy in Washington, D.C. His larger than life sculpture, Lone Sailor, sits on a site near the Capital building and receives thousands of visitors a year. The commission peaked the interest of the national media including the Today Show, Newsweek and The Washington Post. A Weston, Connecticut resident for decades, Stanley shares his time between his secluded studio and home in Connecticut and a home in Pietrasanta, Italy.
