Washington DC [Christopher Columbus Memorial Fountain, by Lorado Taft]
Christopher Columbus Memorial Fountain..
Sculptor: Lorado Taft
Architect: Daniel Burnham..
sculpture was surveyed in 1994 as part of the Smithsonian's "Save Outdoor Sculpture" program..
When I saw the fountain, I was immediately impressed by it's beauty and knew it must be by someone very significant. But at the moment was not aware that it's by none other than Lorado Taft, one of my fav. sculptors.. I took a few photos, but had I known it was by Lorado Taft, I would have paid much more attention. I'm not at all happy with the images, but here they are..
