Saks Galleries recently acquired an important early work by Glenna Goodacre. Ms. Goodacre passed away earlier this year but is fondly remembered as America's premier portrait sculptor. Her well-known public sculptures include the Women's Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., the Sacagawea design on the U.S. Dollar coin, and the massive 35-figure Irish Memorial in Philadelphia.
'Waterbearer' depicts a traditional Pueblo woman. It was made in a very small edition of 15. It is also of note that with this bronze Ms. Goodacre did each pot design personally with patina chemicals -- so every pot design is different. This makes for a truly unique work and a wonderful bronze
