Sculptures of Historical Subjects - Busts of John Paul Jones

Commissioned by the US Department of Navy 

Sold through the ship's store

 

The images below show how Fred would make a clay model starting with the skin and bones, then adding the clothing for a more realistic feel before making a casting.

 

Different supports were used for the different sizes of the sculptures.
