Bronze, 27″x15″, 1948. Wein modeled Phryne Before the Judges in 1948, presumably while he was in Italy. He was commissioned by Archer Milton Huntington to enlarge the work to a monumental size for installation at Brookgreen Gardens, Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina in 1950. It took him two years to carve and complete the commission.
