Excerpt from Portraits in Plaster, From the Collection of Laurence Hutton

The story of the beginning of my collection of masks is curious and perhaps interesting. The half -dozen casts upon which it is based were found, early in the Sixties, in a dust-bin in one of the old-fashioned streets which run towards the East River, in the neighborhood of Tompkins Square, New York. Their owner had lately died; his unsympathetic and unap preciative heirs had thrown away what they considered the horrible things a small boy had found them, and offered them for sale to a dealer in phrenological casts, who realized their worth, although, in many cases, he did not know whose heads they represented; and so, by chance, they came into my possession, and inspired the search for more.
