Large Bronze Self Portrait Sculptor George Lundeen Ca 1972
Presented is
a self-portrait of the the well-known sculptor, George W. Lundeen, done in Urbana, Illinois when he was studying for his Master
of Fine Arts degree, and just prior to when he went to Italy in 1972 as a Fulbright-Hayes Scholar.


The work is unsigned, but its provenance is well documented by a letter dated, June 4, 1986 from the
director of the George Lundeen Studio stating, “A Self-Portrait“ was finished in 1971 or 1972…and is a one-of-a-kind
bronze…that can not be replaced. Purchased shortly after it was made from the Gilman Gallery in Chicago, it has
been in a private collection ever since. In 1986 it was valued at $6000.00 by the studio. One-of-a-kind commissioned Lundeen
sculptures sell for up to $150,000.00.
CONDITION: Fine without exception.
