About this Item

The huge golden Prometheus figure in the fountain in front of Rockefeller Plaza in New York (1934) is one of this sculptor's best known works. ALS "Paul M," 1p, 6" X 7", New York, NY, 1961 October 23. Addressed to Carl Haverlin, president of music licensing giant Broadcast Music Inc. Fine. Regards the stir caused by the New York Civil War Centennial Commission's effort to have a casting of Manship's 1937 equestrian statue of General Ulysses S. Grant erected in front of Grant's Tomb: "Enclosed please find the letter I have just received from Mrs. Wm. Pigott Cronan, Gen. U.S. Grant's Grandaughter." Boldly penned in blue ballpoint. Also present is a copy of Cronan's letter of support, some newspaper clippings regarding the controversy and a few miscellaneous papers. Accompanied by a fine 10" X 8" glossy photograph showing Manship, Haverlin and Bruce Catton examining a scale model of the Grant statue.
