Frederick Elliott Hart (District of Columbia/Virginia, 1943-1999) clear acrylic resin sculpture mounted on a lucite base titled "Herself." Depicts the head of a woman with a second female face carved in deep relief in her flowing hair. Signed, dated, and numbered "Frederick Hart [copyright] 84#15/CB Edition #116" top left of base. 15" H x 19" W x 8 1/2" D. 24.8 lbs. American, late 20th century. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Hart was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in South Carolina. A sculptor and stone cutter in the Classical style, Frederick Hart learned his art while an apprentice at the National Cathedral in Washington DC. Public recognition increased when he won a competition to design the facade of the Cathedral, which incorporated his thirteen year masterpiece of "The Creation." He also designed "Three Soldiers," realistic in style, for the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in DC to contrast with the abstraction of Maya Lin's Vietnam Memorial. As a proponent of Realism, he was made an honorary member of The American Society of Classical Realism Guild of Artists. CONDITION: Overall very good condition. Sculpture with a couple of areas of discoloration from the production process.
