About the Artwork
Originally installed at the Expo Center, this figurative sculpture was moved in 2007 to the Mennello Museum of American Art so it could stand adjacent to Rocket Thrower, also by Donald DeLue, and be more easily enjoyed by the public.
About the Artist
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Donald Harcourt De Lue’s career spanned an impressive six decades. Highly regarded in the artist community both for his talent and character, De Lue was known as a “sculptor’s sculptor” and served as a president of the National Sculpture Society. Among his many accolades, De Lue is most often praised for his virtuosity in sculpting the human form in the traditional method. A product of study in both the United States and France, De Lue’s figurative sculptures often evoke nationalistic symbolism, classical mythology, or philosophical ideas.
