ATWOOD and MARTINY. Sculpture

The Museum of Science and Industry.

Charles Atwood's distinct talent for interpreting  and re-interpreting classical forms is highlighted on the North and South Facades of the The Fine Arts Building at the Columbian Exposition (Now the Museum of Science and Industry). In this photo we see Sculptural columns and Structural sculpture  -- an inversion in late afternoon sunlight.  Phillip Martiny, Sculptor, - and Atwood/s collaborator --   seems to have had an inate sense of mass and scale:  his figures are at perfect rest on Atwood's Ionic columns.
