European Bronze Sculptures


from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections

 

“As with his European terra-cotta sculptures, Dr. Sackler put together bronze sculptures purchased in Italy, France, the Netherlands and Germany. During the years of forming the collection, he accumulated over fifty European bronze sculptures and by 1985 he determined that it was time to produce a catalogue for them. Consequently, in that year the AMS Foundation for the Arts, Sciences and Humanities asked Anthony Radcliffe, with the collaboration of Lois Katz, to write the catalogue of the collection…

“We had arranged to unveil the European bronze sculpture collection in autumn 1987 at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England, where Director Michael Jaffé, a respected scholar and Arthur’s good friend, was eager to mount the first exhibition. Sir John Pope-Hennesy viewed the collection and pronounced it “impressive”… Following the Fitzwilliam exhibition, the European sculpture collection was due to be shown at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in 1988, and Carter Brown had promised a permanent gallery. These plans were cancelled following the untimely death of Arthur in May 1987…”
