More Information

A fine, atmospheric impression, on cream, wove paper, with full margins (1 1/2 to 4 5/16 inches); slight toning to the sheet edges, not affecting the image, otherwise in excellent condition.

The Pulitzer fountain was commissioned as a bequest by Joseph Pulitzer, newspaper publisher and founder of the Columbia School of Journalism. Designed by Austrian sculptor Karl Bitter and architect Thomas Hastings, the bronze sculpture represents Pomona, the Roman goddess of abundance. Built in New York City in 1916, it is located at Grand Army Plaza, in front of the Plaza Hotel and is framed by the entrance to Central Park.
