Hiram Powers, America (1848-50). Plaster, 89 1/5 x 35 1/5 x 16 7/8 in. National Museum of American Art, Washington. Reproduced from Vivien Green Fryd, "Hiram Powers's America: 'Triumphant as Liberty and in Unity'," The American Journal of Art XVIII:2 (1986), 54. Powers' allegorical figure was meant to be not only emblematic of American values, but also of the 1848 revolutions in Europe.
