Alfred Taubman Catalogue Note By the time Carl Edwin Milles came from Sweden in 1931 to become the sculptor-in-residence at the Cranbook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, he was already highly regarded for his large-scale public sculptures that exhibit his rhythmic and expressive aesthetic. Milles’’ best known work is perhaps The Europa Fountain. Created for the market square in Halmstad, Sweden, the fountain takes as its subject the ancient Greek myth of the rape of Europa by the god Zeus, who disguised himself as a white bull and carried her out to sea. The present work is most likely a model for the fountain—his first large fountain commission. Another version of the fountain can be found at Cranbrook, where Milles lived and taught for almost 20 years. Founded by George Gough Booth and designed by Eliel Saarinen, Cranbrook has served as a hub of American Modernism for nearly a century. In the earliest years, both Booth and Saarinen were inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement taking place concurrently in England and Scandinavia. This influenced their desire to return to an emphasis on careful design and hand-made production in American culture. Producing diverse artists and designers such as Ray and Charles Eames, Florence Knoll and Duane Hanson, the Academy is still today a close knit living-learning community whose members have significant impact in the world of art, architecture, and design.

Milles first exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1899, and was awarded a Mention Honorable in 1900. After returning to Sweden, he taught at the Royal Academy in Stockholm, before moving to the United States in 1930. He was appointed as a professor at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, and his first American exhibition took place at the Fine Arts Museum in Saint Louis, Missouri in 1931. He received a vast number of commissions for Public statuary in the US, including the Peace Monument in Saint Paul, Minnesota and a large figure housed in the Time-Life Building in Radio City in the Rockefeller Center in New York. His works are held in a number of museums around the world, including the Tate Gallery in London, the Stockholm Museum in Sweden, the Musee Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
