Luce Center Label

Olin Warner modeled this bust of his eleven-month-old daughter Rosalie in May 1888, while he was waiting for the bronze and granite work of a fountain commission to be finished. It was his first portrait of a child and the acclaim he received for it led to commissions for other children’s portraits.

Luce Object Quote

“Mr. Olin Warner has amused himself, during the intervals of more important work upon the fountain he has designed for Portland, Oregon, in modeling the head of an infant, in clay . . . He has never done anything more successful, there is a serious charm about this work which makes it akin to the cherubs of Della Robbia and Verocchio.” The Studio, August 1888
