Description:
Donald DeLue - 1897-1988 DE LUE, Donald, (American, 1900-1988): ''Water Nymphs'', Etching, 14 1/4'' x 10 1/2'' with margins, pencil signed lower right, titled lower left, image size 9 3/4'' x 7 3/4'', unframed. Donald Harcourt De Lue created, in a career spanning sixty years, more monumental sculpture than any other recent American artist, and is regarded as one of America's greatest monumental sculptors in the Realist style in the twentieth century. His works include: Rocket Thrower, executed for the New York World's Fair of 1964; The Spirit of American Youth, for the Omaha Beach Memorial, Normandy; Quest Eternal, at the Prudential Center in Boston; Washington at Prayer, at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania; and three of the monuments at the Gettysburg Battlefield. An accomplished draftsman, De Lue also created an extensive portfolio of designs on paper (over 2,000 in total) that inspired or related directly to his three-dimensional works, as well as a limited number of drypoint prints between the years 1933 and 1934. He studied at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and later served as an assistant to sculptors Richard Recchia and Robert P.Baker. De Lue was president of the National Sculpture Society (1945-1947), a Guggenheim fellow (1943-1944), and in 1964 received the Harry Herring Medal and Golden Plate Award from the National Sculpture Society and National academy of Achievement, respectively.
