At the time at which the bust was sculpted there were few sculptors working at this time in NYC that were competent enought to produce a work of this quality. The style of the features is reminiscent of the work of Robert Ball Hughes although there is no documentation to support this attribution.
Gift of Mr. Maunsell B. Field
