Joy Of The Waters
bronze with brown patina
height: 61 inches (154.9 cm)
The present work was cast in an edition of 30 between 1920 and 1971. Frishmuth submitted Joy of the Waters to the 1925 Womenâ??s World Fair in Chicago, held in April at the American Exposition Palace. The event attracted more than 160,000 visitors and showcased womenâ??s accomplishments in art, literature, and science. As a result, the present work quickly became one of Frishmuthâ??s most well-known sculptures. Other examples are found in the permanent collections of the Dayton Art Institute, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
