Anne Morin

  • Albino Cavallito, Anne Morin, 1935-1940, terra cotta mounted on wood base, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Julia A. Sullivan, 1972.179

Luce Center Label

This portrait by Albino Cavallito may be of Anne Regina Morin, daughter of John M. Morin, a figure in Franklin Roosevelt’s administration. Anne Morin studied in Erie, Pennsylvania, and in Washington, D.C., where she got her master’s degree. The face appears quite young, so it is possible that the artist met Morin while she was still a student in Pennsylvania. Cavallito intentionally left the head unfinished, creating an unusual silhouette when the piece is viewed from the side.
