Description

Theodore Roosevelt bronze bust; TR’s kerchief and epaulettes are reminiscent of his Rough Rider uniform.

Sculpted by James Earle Fraser, an assistant to Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Fraser designed the buffalo nickel and his End of the Trail (1915), an image of an exhausted Indian hunched over his tired horse, is one of the most recognized sculptures of the American West.

He was commissioned to create sculptures for the Supreme Court, the National Archives, Treasury Department (Alexander Hamilton and Albert Gallatin), and Department of Commerce buildings. As well he produced  historical, presidential, and military portraits.  He designed the Buffalo Nickel and the United States Victory Medal. In 1951, he received the gold medal for sculpture from the National Institute and American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Handsome full bronze in the desirable “lost wax” method.
