Here is the story behind one of America's most prolific-yet least known artists of the 20th Century. Lee Lawrie created architectural sculptures on buildings for more than 70 years, in 23 states and at least 3 foreign countries. Yet due to his humility, he never sought celebrity, and consequently, most art historians have never heard of him.
This is the story of his largest job, the multitude of sculptures at the Nebraska State Capitol, his role as a collaborator with the architect, and how this project all came together and occupied more than 14 years of his life. The book also explains that his art helps to convey the purpose of the building, teaching the citizens about the institutions of government the European Settlers brought with them into the new land, and paying homage to the Native American Plains Indians they had displaced.
It also provides lessons on the development of law, Western Civilization and Democracy. It is written in a conversational style that is easily accessible to anyone from middle school up through colleges.
A book of clear verse. Geese migrate through its lines. Tall ships leave Liverpool Bay. An iceberg breaks free of Antarctica. Ivory burns in Kenya. The healing of the rift between nations is contemplated. An exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite art is visited. The crossing of the Rubicon is dared. Franz Kafka writes his tales. The spirit of T.S. Eliot revisits The Waste Land. Shakespeare drinks with his acting company. Autumn in Yerevan, Armenia, is mirrored. Utopia is mused on. Childhood is remembered. Love celebrated. Archie Leach sets sail from Bristol to New York. Matthew Flinders becomes the first man to circumnavigate Australia. Noah's ark moors on mount Ararat. The death of the last white rhinoceros is lamented. Weland the smith lifts his hammer. Hugh Minn finds an alien in his loft. Various other visions and inspirations are explored. Readers of these lines will hopefully find them worthy of study.
