Paul Manship, Barry Faulkner Portrait Medal (reverse), bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of the artist, 1965.16.65
American artist Barry Faulkner (1881-1966) is known for his murals in the National Archives building in Washington, D.C., and in state capitols across the United States. Paul Manship knew Faulkner when they were both students at the American Academy in Rome from 1909 to 1912. The inscription on the reverse, “To the Ultimate Do We Pursue the Ideal,” reflects the classical training that Manship and Faulkner shared.
