Enrico Causici, "Liberty," (1825)

Enrico Causici, "Liberty" (1825). Marble. Statuary Hall, U.S. Capitol, Washington. Reproduced from Wayne Craven, Sculpture in America, University of Delaware, 1984, 81. Causici was commissioned to make many of the sculptures that decorate the United States Capitol. His neoclassical manner did not always satisfy, as one senator complained, "A Yankee sailor with a jack-knife and a shingle, would carve images that would be better imitators of humanity."
