Description

    George Washington: Impressive Bronze Plaque by O'Donovan. 16 3/4" x 18 1/2" bas-relief bronze plaque titled "From The Houdon Life-Cast of Washington". Signed in the top left corner "[shamrock] O' 1880". This is the work of William Rudolph O'Donovan (1844-1820), a Confederate veteran who was a self-taught sculptor. He specialized in George Washington. He also worked with Thomas Eakins on the Soldiers' and Sailors' Arch in Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York. Eakins modeled the horses and O'Donovan did Lincoln and Grant. The bronze plaque is very hefty and is housed in what appears is the original frame with eagle finial and wreath at the top. We are also selling the Lincoln mate. This, like the Lincoln, is a very handsome piece and obviously the work of an accomplished artist. Exceptionally beautiful patina.
