Paul Wayland Bartlett, Georges Corneau, 1923, bronze, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Mrs. Armistead Peter III, 1958.11.26
The inscription on this medal reads “a mon ami,” which suggests that Paul Wayland Bartlett and the sitter, Georges Corneau, were colleagues. We know little about Corneau, but it is likely that he was among the many French artists and academicians with whom Bartlett fostered relationships throughout his career. Bartlett died following an injury suffered in the Ardennes region outside Paris, where an avenue commemorates Corneau.
