Weinman. This captivating piece portrays a nude female angel, her head gently lowered and her arms delicately brushing her cascading hair. Exquisitely detailed, her majestic wings span with grace and beauty. "Descending Night" and its counterpart, "Rising Day," were originally designed as fountain figures for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. After the exhibition, Weinman replicated both sculptures in two sizes: approximately 24 inches tall and approximately 57 inches tall. This particular sculpture is signed by A. A. Weinman, the talented artist behind its creation. Born in Germany, Weinman immigrated to the United States at a young age. He honed his craft as an apprentice to carver Frederick Kaldenberg, while also studying drawing and modeling at Cooper Union in the evenings. Later, he furthered his artistic education at the Art Students League under the guidance of the esteemed American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Weinman's repertoire includes a wide range of sculptures, from portrait statues to captivating and dramatic pieces. Notable among his works are the Fountain of the Water Centaurs at the Missouri State Capitol, Riders of the Dawn at Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina, and renowned pieces like "Rising Sun," "Duet," "Narcissus," and "Aphrodite." Embrace the beauty and artistry of "Descending Night," a true masterpiece in bronze sculpture. Whether displayed as a focal point in your collection or as an enchanting centerpiece, it captivates with its ethereal presence and meticulous craftsmanship. Experience the enduring legacy of Adolph A. Weinman and add this extraordinary sculpture to your artistic journey.
Milo captures the beauty, strength and movement in this well crafted horse head bronze. Its size and shape makes it easy to place in many room settings and still make a statement. Bravo!
This original Milo bronze is absolutely stunning! It’s attention to life-like detail is outstanding. This beautiful wild life bronze commands both attention and admiration. We feel very fortunate to own this timeless work of art.
The quality and detail of the statue are great. And the whimsical Dali design is wonderful. It is everything I hoped for. Thanks
Extremely beautiful. Well done!
This piece is high quality. Each piece of the sculpture is separate and can be displayed separately and moved around on the carpet. This means that the sculpture can be changed from time to time making it more interesting.
Would recommend sculptures like this for the flexibility of display.
The pieces are perfect without any blemishes and look to be new.
Will buy again from this provider.
Excellent quality bronze sculpture consistent with pictures and description. Very pleased with this purchase.
This is a nice addition to our library shelves. It sits on some home design books and really stands out. I have already received several compliments.
Excellent, beautifully crafted, totally art at it's highest form. Great price point and shipping from UPS, very secure.
The Elephant is amazing
I love it. You guys are master craftsmen. I have a few of your works which are also great .Keep adding artists like Moore and Giacometti. I will purchase any and all that you produce.
Thanks, Marc Silverman Rockville Maryland 20854
Love the blue Havana Man. This site has great bronze art. Best collection I have seen in a long time.
Very presentable and lifelike. Demonstrates dolphins at play and coveys the joy therein.
Lovely piece. I may want another Diana with a dog. Perhaps at a discount. What is available? Expert and fast shipping. You guys are great. Thanks, Rick
Hi folks, I am a figure artist living in a very conservative community where the local art venues are reluctant to exhibit the simplest nudes. To see your array of uncensored realism is encouraging. The one piece I have received from you will hopefully be the beginning of my collection.
I have both pieces and they are excellent quality. I’m very pleased with them.
This Statue is absolutely stunning! I love it. Pictures do not begin to do it justice. I just ordered this and it's arrived already. I can't believe the level of protection for shipping. If anything they overprotected it. I have ordered from this company many times and know I will probably order again at a future date. I highly recommend this merchant.
