Albert Wein, N.A. : An American Modernist

"Wein's work in this exhibit should reintroduce an American original who deserves to be reassessed as a first-rate sculptor who captured the energy and ideas of his times without compromise or capitulating to public sentiment. The sculptures, paintings and medals seem at home in the nation's largest subscription library, which claims as memebers national luminaries including John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, and Herman Melville. The majestic sculptures on display seem as if they belong in the Athens of Pericles or the Coliseum of Rome. Wein's subjects ranged from mythological and religious figures, larger-than-life humans, sculpted tributes to musicaians such as Pablo Casals and even Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan atop the mound."
