By Anthonys Fine Art & Antiques


Perhaps the most influential Senator in the history of the United States, Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852), defined US policy and molded legislation as a representative of Massachusetts and, later, as the Secretary of State. A monumental version of this statue by Thomas Ball (1819 - 1911) is in Central Park (New York). It the first of many monumental works that would be executed by Ball's, including John Quincy Adams (1869; Old City Hall, Boston), Emancipation Memorial (1875; Lincoln Park, Washington, DC) and St. John the Evangelist (1875; Smithsonian Art Museum, Washington, DC).

The bronze statue is signed and dated on the reverse.
