Luce Center Quote

“What matters is the spirit which the artist puts into his creation---the vitality, the rhythm, the emotional effect." Paul Manship, quoted in Panzer, Mythology and the Art of Paul Manship, 1989

Luce Center Label

Paul Manship created many models of Native American hunters, including one for a fountain in Cochran Memorial Park in St. Paul, completed in 1926. The subject was a favorite of the artist’s because it reminded him of his childhood in rural Minnesota, and he returned to it often throughout his career. In these sculptures the determined expressions and animated poses of the figures evoke the excitement of the chase.
