Thomas Jefferson American President Bust, Bronze, 28HPN# 344B_28
Thomas Jefferson was 43 years old when this portrait was made. By that time, he had already drafted the Declaration of Independence, been the Governor of Virginia and ambassador to France, and served in the first Continental Congress. He would go on to become Vice-President under John Adams and then President, serving two consecutive terms. He also founded and designed the University of Virginia before retiring to his beloved Monticello, where the best minds of two continents sought audience with the great sage. He died on July 4th, 1826, 50 years to the day after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
This sculpture is hand-cast and hand-finished in crushed stone resin. Centuries-old casting techniques still apply. Artisans apply the patina in a labor-intensive process that requires several layers and specialized shading. The result is a durable statue that stands up to the ravages of time.
