Andre Captured

  • Paul Manship, Andre Captured, n.d., bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Bequest of Paul Manship, 1966.47.143

Luce Center Label

Paul Manship's bronze relief Andre Captured is one of several the sculptor created to commemorate episodes from the Revolutionary War (see also 1966.47.141, 1966.47.144, 1966.47.145 and 1966.47.136). Manship's papers indicate that these reliefs were designed for a projected "Hall of History," but research has not revealed where or when that project was to appear. The mounted figure represents Major John Andre, an English soldier of Huguenot descent who conspired with Benedict Arnold to surrender the fort at West Point to the British.
