Courtyard art

One and a half “stone’s throw” southeast from my home Colmar is located.
the city many connect with the heart of Alsace.
Often said to be in the middle of “the french pantry” too,
but has a string of lots of other qualities.

Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi a Colmar-born french/german sculptor,
best known for designing Liberty Enlightening the World, known as the Statue of Liberty
– and a lot of other artworks in France and in Amercica as well.
His childhood home have been Musée Bartholdi for nearly 100 years.

Inside the courtyard in front of the entrance of the building.
His impressive sculpture “Les grands soutiens du monde” is standing
– in english the “Great supporters of the world”.

    • Creator of lots of sculptures, especially in France and US. Among other things, the huge “The Lion of Belfort”, the Bartholdi Fountain in Washington DC, the Frieze and four angelic trumpeters on the tower of Brattle Square Church in Boston, the statue of Christopher Columbus, cast in silver for the 1892 Columbian Exposition in Chicago and all the goddesses of freedom around the world as well. 🙂
