It’s been a long, hot summer so far hasn’t it? I’ve received several contacts from individuals who have owned or believed they owned a Dallin work. This is always very exciting for me, because I can then identify more things for my catalog raissone! But, it also means that it is likely many more works exist that we do not know about. Thirdly – it’s an opportunity for me to educate someone on who Dallin was and why he is important in the field of art.
If you own a Dallin – I would love to hear from you! Comment on this post and let me know how to reach you. The comments are moderated and all identifying information will be removed prior to posting widely. If you don’t – come visit us at the Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum in Arlington, Massachusetts and see what all the fuss is about. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Until next time…
