Footnotes

  • George Maitland Stanley was a Los Angeles-based sculptor and art educator perhaps most famous for sculpting the Oscar statuette. Designed by MGM art director Cedric Gibbons, this sculpture has remained the iconic symbol of the Academy Awards since 1929 when the first Oscar was awarded. Throughout his career, Stanley was commissioned to create many important public works in Los Angeles including the Hollywood Bowl Entrance entitled "Sculpture of the Muse of Music, Dance, and Drama". This twenty-two foot tall two hundred foot wide granite structure has remained an important cultural landmark of the Los Angeles area since its completion in 1940.

    Although the offered lot was meant to be an edition of fifty, no more than five castings of this model are known to have been created by the artist.
