Strength and refinement are communicated simultaneously in this elegant portrait of Hildegarde Lasell Watson. She and her husband, James Sibley Watson, Jr., were important figures in Rochester’s cultural history, and were central to an avant-garde salon of writers, artists and musicians during the first half of the 20th century.
The sculpture is enlivened by Gaston Lachaise’s characteristic use of contrasting surface colors.
