Benjamin Franklin Bust

Sorry, currently out of stock

Highly detailed, our bust is a replica of a sculpture by Jean-Antoine Houdon. Houdon sculpted many 18th century luminaries. Houdon's bust of Franklin is one of his earlier works and precedes famous figures such as  Jefferson, Napoleon and Voltaire. Polyresin. 6"h.

The Library of Congress Manuscript and Prints and Photographs divisions hold many original works by Franklin. The most significant artifacts appeared in an exhibit called Benjamin Franklin in His Own Words.
