Paul Manship, The Four Elements





These bronze panels were commissioned by architect William Welles Bosworth for the new headquarters of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company at the corner of Broadway and Fulton Streets in New York. Up until this time Manship had focused on neoclassical work, but here he also employed imagery from Chinese and Indian art. Now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
