John Flanagan’s plaster relief honors the artist Joseph Pennell (1857-1926), who led a revival of etching in the United States around the turn of the twentieth century. Pennell and his wife, Elizabeth Robins, were leading American illustrators, and in 1908 the couple collaborated on Life, a two-volume biography of American artist James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903).
