Situated in a museum’s Italianate garden setting, Diana of the Hunt is portrayed with her symbolic majesty against the textured immensity of live oaks. The statue’s restored surfaces present a remarkable profile of patterns, shades, nuanced colors and brilliant highlights on Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington’s arching bronze figure.
A revered Roman goddess of antiquity, Diana of the Hunt brings a mythic dimension into modern form. The title of the watercolor is a tribute to the European inspirations for this iconic sculpture. Seminar demo at the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, Jacksonville, FL
