Art History

I forgot to add the post about Art History this week. We are celebrating Horatio Greenough’s birthday. He lived from 1805-1852. The U.S. government commissioned (vocabulary word) to sculpt a sculpture of George Washington. Greenough’s sculpture was very controversial (vocab. word) as you can see. He modeled the sculpture after a Greek statue of Zeus – depicting power and authority.
