Peace MARBLE BUST Sculpture by the Famous American Sculptor William Ordway Partridge With its textural contrasts of smooth hair and face and rough-hewn surround, Peace reflects the technical influence of French sculptor Auguste Rodin on American sculptor William Ordway Partridge (American, 1861-1930). Partridge was known for his public works, including a statue of Thomas Jefferson at Columbia University in New York City and one of the Pocahontas in Jamestown, Virginia. Peace, modeled and carved around 1898, is one of his few symbolic ideal compositions. The female head emerges from a block of marble, its calm features embodying a state of tranquility. About William Ordway Partridge: Trained in New York, Paris, and Rome, William Ordway Partridge (American, 1861-1930) belonged to the generation of American Beaux-Arts sculptors that included such luminaries as Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Daniel Chester French. Champions of an American Renaissance in art and architecture, Partridge and his contemporaries beautified American cities with public monuments befitting a confident, prosperous nation at the turn of the twentieth century. Among Partridge's best-known works are statues of Alexander Hamilton (1892) and Ulysses S. Grant (1895), both in New York City.
