John Angel (sculptor)
John Angel was a British-born sculptor and ecclesiastical sculptor and lecturer. He emigrated to the United States, his work in the United Kingdom and the United States has been critically praised. He was born in Newton Abbot, England, the son of a tailor, one of ten children, he entered a seven-year apprenticeship to a wood carver at the age of 14 years. He received formal training at the Exeter School of Art and at the Lambeth School of Art. George Frampton became his mentor at the Royal Academy School, his influence resonated in Angel's work. Angel studied with Sir Thomas Brock, his professional progression is verified by census data: his occupation in the Census of England and Wales, 1901 was. Turning 30, he was elected in 1919 to the Royal Society of British Sculptors, his work in the United Kingdom includes the Exeter War Memorial and the Bridgwater War Memorial — known as the "Angel of Bridgwater". He was noted for evocative ecclesiastical sculptures, he spent many years doing the six bronze doors at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York.
He teamed with architect Ralph Adams Cram in outfitting Pittsburgh's East Liberty Presbyterian Church, colloquially known as the "Cathedral of Hope," and did the Last Supper group in marble as well as tympana over several entrances. The commissions and awards were numerous. In 1930 he completed the Founder's Memorial at Rice University — depicting a seated William Marsh Rice — in line with specifications by architect Ralph Adams Cram, he produced sculptures for chapels at Princeton University, St. Paul's School and the Desloge Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. A statue honoring Alexander Hamilton in Lincoln Park in Chicago, Illinois was mired in controversy, at least concerning the surrounding architecture. Kate Sturges Buckingham, of the Buckingham Fountain family, commissioned the monument, its impetus was that Treasury Secretary Hamilton "secured the nation’s financial future and made it possible for her own family to make its fortune in grain elevators and banking." John Angel was hired to model a figurative sculpture and the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen was to create a "colossal architectural setting" for it.
The proposed 80-foot tall columned shelter was poorly received. By Ms. Buckingham's death in 1937, the sculpture’s setting and design were uncertain. Conspiracy allegations surfaced, the matter became mired in litigation. After the courts ordered the construction to be completed by 1953, the trustees hired architect Samuel A. Marx, it was built, but structural problems appeared, it was demolished in 1993. The statue was gilded, is still on display. While he was living in London, he married Elizabeth Day Seymour on April 25, 1914, they had met in Greece at a time when he "was a promising young sculptor." She was the daughter of Professor Thomas Day Seymour, of Yale University, was educated at Bryn Mawr, becoming an American classicist. They had two children and the family went to the United States in 1925, upon the request of architect Ralph Adams Cram. In his autobiography Cram wrote, "John Angel had come to America for a visit, we had induced him, rather against his will I fancy, to do for us...
Out of the blue, so to speak, had fallen upon us the sculptor we had dreamed of but hardly dared hope for." British-American biological anthropologist John Lawrence Angel was Angel-Seymour's son. When he died in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, he was reputed to be one of America’s foremost sculptors. Two main works were at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York and in the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Vincennes, Indiana; the latter includes a rendering of Francis Vigo. Angel himself proclaimed the ten-ton Vigo sculpture to be the best he had done, he described the style of most of his work as ersatz 13th Century Gothic. But says Angel, "I use all my knowledge of the human figure, so what we call Gothic is Gothic with a difference." By nature self-deprecating, he noted: "I never went to school. The Smithsonian Institution has 4.1 linear feet of his biographic material, sketches, 30 sketch books and papers, that were donated by Henry S. Angel in 1981. Elizabeth Day Seymour's papers are with her family's 51 linear feet on deposit at the Yale University Library.

Gothic architecture is a style that flourished in Europe during the High and Late Middle Ages. It was succeeded by Renaissance architecture. Originating in 12th-century France, it was used for cathedrals and churches, until the 16th century, its most prominent features included the use of the rib vault and the flying buttress, which allowed the weight of the roof to be counterbalanced by buttresses outside the building, giving greater height and more space for windows. Another important feature was the extensive use of stained glass, the rose window, to bring light and color to the interior. Another feature was the use of realistic statuary on the exterior over the portals, to illustrate biblical stories for the illiterate parishioners; these technologies had all existed in Romanesque architecture, but they were used in more innovative ways and more extensively in Gothic architecture to make buildings taller and stronger. The first notable example is considered to be the Abbey of Saint-Denis, near Paris, whose choir and facade were reconstructed with Gothic features.
The choir was completed in 1144. The style appeared in some civic architecture in northern Europe, notably in town halls and university buildings. A Gothic revival began in mid-18th-century England, spread through 19th century Europe and continued for ecclesiastical and university structures, into the 20th century. Gothic architecture was known during the period as opus francigenum, The term "Gothic architecture" originated in the 16th century, was very negative, suggesting barbaric. Giorgio Vasari used the term "barbarous German style" in his 1550 Lives of the Artists to describe what is now considered the Gothic style, in the introduction to the Lives he attributed various architectural features to "the Goths" whom he held responsible for destroying the ancient buildings after they conquered Rome, erecting new ones in this style; the Gothic style originated in the Ile-de-France region of northern France in the first half of the 12th century. A new dynasty of French Kings, the Capetians, had subdued the feudal lords, had become the most powerful rulers in France, with their capital in Paris.
They allied themselves with the bishops of the major cities of northern France, reduced the power of the feudal abbots and monasteries. Their rise coincided with an enormous growth of the population and prosperity of the cities of northern France; the Capetian Kings and their bishops wished to build new cathedrals as monuments of their power and religious faith. The church which served as the primary model for the style was the Abbey of St-Denis, which underwent reconstruction by the Abbot Suger, first in the choir and the facade, Suger was a close ally and biographer of the French King, Louis VII, a fervent Catholic and builder, the founder of the University of Paris. Suger remodeled the ambulatory of the Abbey, removed the enclosures that separated the chapels, replaced the existing structure with imposing pillars and rib vaults; this created higher and wider bays, into which he installed larger windows, which filled the end of the church with light. Soon afterwards he rebuilt the facade, adding three deep portals, each with a tympanum, an arch filled with sculpture illustrating biblical stories.
The new facade was flanked by two towers. He installed a small circular rose window over the central portal; this design became the prototype for a series of new French cathedrals. Sens Cathedral was the first Cathedral to be built in the new style. Other versions of the new style soon appeared in Noyon Cathedral; the Gothic style was adapted by some French monastic orders, notably the Cistercian order under Saint Bernard of Clairvaux It was used in an austere form without ornament at the new Cistercian Abbey of Fontenay and the church of Clairvaux Abbey, whose site is now occupied by a French prison. The new style was copied outside the Kingdom of France in the Duchy of Normandy. Early examples of Norman Gothic included Coutances Cathedral. Through the rule of the Angevin dynasty, the new style was introduced to England and spread from there to Low Countries, Spain, northern Italy and Sicily; the Gothic style did not replace the Romanesque everywhere in Europe. The Late Romanesque continued to flourish in the Holy Roman Empire under the Hohenstaufens and Rhineland.
From the end of the 12th century until the middle of the 13th century, the gothic style spread from the Île-de-France to appear in other cities of northern France. New structures in the style included Chartres Cathedral; the early type of rib vault used of Saint Denis and Notre Dame, with six parts, was modified to four parts, making it simpler and stronger. Amiens and Chartres were among the first to use the flying buttress. At Reims, the buttresses were given greater weight and strength by the addition of heavy stone pinnacles on top; these were decorated with statues of ange
Jesus referred to as Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus Christ, was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He is the central figure of Christianity, is described as the most influential person in history. Most Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament. All modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed although the quest for the historical Jesus has produced little agreement on the historical reliability of the Gospels and on how the Jesus portrayed in the Bible reflects the historical Jesus. Jesus was a Galilean Jew, baptized by John the Baptist and began his own ministry, he preached orally and was referred to as "rabbi". Jesus debated with fellow Jews on how to best follow God, engaged in healings, taught in parables and gathered followers, he was arrested and tried by the Jewish authorities, turned over to the Roman government, crucified on the order of Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect. After his death, his followers believed he rose from the dead, the community they formed became the early Church.
The birth of Jesus is celebrated annually on December 25th as Christmas. His crucifixion is honored on his resurrection on Easter; the used calendar era "AD", from the Latin anno Domini, the equivalent alternative "CE", are based on the approximate birthdate of Jesus. Christian doctrines include the beliefs that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of a virgin named Mary, performed miracles, founded the Christian Church, died by crucifixion as a sacrifice to achieve atonement for sin, rose from the dead, ascended into Heaven, from where he will return. Most Christians believe; the Nicene Creed asserts that Jesus will judge the living and the dead either before or after their bodily resurrection, an event tied to the Second Coming of Jesus in Christian eschatology. The great majority of Christians worship Jesus as the incarnation of God the Son, the second of three persons of the Trinity. A minority of Christian denominations reject Trinitarianism, wholly or as non-scriptural. Jesus figures in non-Christian religions and new religious movements.
In Islam, Jesus is considered one of the Messiah. Muslims believe Jesus was a bringer of scripture and was born of a virgin, but was not the son of God; the Quran states. Most Muslims do not believe that he was crucified, but that he was physically raised into Heaven by God. In contrast, Judaism rejects the belief that Jesus was the awaited Messiah, arguing that he did not fulfill Messianic prophecies, was neither divine nor resurrected. A typical Jew in Jesus' time had only one name, sometimes followed by the phrase "son of <father's name>", or the individual's hometown. Thus, in the New Testament, Jesus is referred to as "Jesus of Nazareth". Jesus' neighbors in Nazareth refer to him as "the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon", "the carpenter's son", or "Joseph's son". In John, the disciple Philip refers to him as "Jesus son of Joseph from Nazareth"; the name Jesus is derived from the Latin Iesus, a transliteration of the Greek Ἰησοῦς. The Greek form is a rendering of the Hebrew ישוע, a variant of the earlier name יהושע, or in English, "Joshua", meaning "Yah saves".
This was the name of Moses' successor and of a Jewish high priest. The name Yeshua appears to have been in use in Judea at the time of the birth of Jesus; the 1st-century works of historian Flavius Josephus, who wrote in Koine Greek, the same language as that of the New Testament, refer to at least twenty different people with the name Jesus. The etymology of Jesus' name in the context of the New Testament is given as "Yahweh is salvation". Since early Christianity, Christians have referred to Jesus as "Jesus Christ"; the word Christ was a office, not a given name. It derives from the Greek Χριστός, a translation of the Hebrew mashiakh meaning "anointed", is transliterated into English as "Messiah". In biblical Judaism, sacred oil was used to anoint certain exceptionally holy people and objects as part of their religious investiture. Christians of the time designated Jesus as "the Christ" because they believed him to be the Messiah, whose arrival is prophesied in the Hebrew Bible and Old Testament.
In postbiblical usage, Christ became viewed as a name—one part of "Jesus Christ". The term "Christian" has been in use since the 1st century; the four canonical gospels are the foremost sources for the message of Jesus. However, other parts of the New Testament include references to key episodes in his life, such as the Last Supper in 1 Corinthians 11:23. Acts of the Apostles refers to the early ministry of its anticipation by John the Baptist. Acts 1:1 -- 11 says more about the Ascension of Jesus. In the undisputed Pauline letters, which were written earlier than the gospels, the words or instructions of Jesus are cited several times; some early Christian groups had separate descriptions of the life and teachings of Jesus that are not included in the New Testament. These include the Gospel of Thomas, Gospel
Marshall Maynard Fredericks was an American sculptor. Fredericks was born of Scandinavian descent in Rock Island, Illinois on January 31, 1908, his family moved to Florida for a short time and settled in Cleveland, where he grew up. He graduated from the Cleveland School of Art in 1930 and journeyed abroad on a fellowship to study with Carl Milles in Sweden. After some months he studied in other academies and private studios in Denmark, Germany and Italy, traveled extensively in Europe and North Africa. In 1932, he was invited by Carl Milles to join the staffs of Cranbrook Academy of Art and Cranbrook and Kingswood School in Bloomfield Hills, teaching there until he enlisted in the armed forces in 1942. In 1945, Fredericks was honorably discharged from the Air Force as a lieutenant colonel. In 1936, Fredericks won a competition to create the Levi L. Barbour Memorial Fountain on Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan; this was to be the first of many public monuments created by Fredericks. After World War II, the sculptor worked continuously on his numerous commissions for fountains, free-standing sculptures and portraits in bronze and other materials.
Many of his works have spiritual intensity, lighthearted humor and a warm and gentle humanist spirit like that found in Fredericks himself. Fredericks was the recipient of many American and foreign awards and decorations for his artistic and humanitarian achievements, he exhibited his work nationally and internationally and many of his works are in national and private collections. In 1957, he was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member, became a full Academician in 1961, he resided in Birmingham, Michigan with his wife Rosalind Cooke until his death April 4, 1998. The couple had eight grandchildren, he maintained studios at 4113 North Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak and on East Long Lake Road in Bloomfield Hills until his death. His estate donated the contents of both studios to the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum on the campus of Saginaw Valley State University in Saginaw, Michigan; the Cleveland War Memorial Fountain: Peace Arising from the Flames of War known as The Fountain of Eternal Life was installed on The Mall in downtown Cleveland, Ohio to commemorate those who served in World War II.
It bears the inscription, IN HONORED MEMORY OF THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR COUNTRY. The work was 20 years in the making and was dedicated on May 31, 1964. Four groups in Norwegian emerald pearl granite, each 4 by 12 feet, represent the religious aspirations from all over the globe that are the foundation for the soaring figure that represents eternal life; the figure was cast in Norway, where the granite groups were carved. The globe under the figure was cast in New York; the four groups represent the four "corners" of the earth from which come the major religions, which in turn gave birth to the idea of eternal life, here represented by the human figure in the center of the sculpture. Fredericks was one of six artists commissioned to design sculpture for Northland Shopping Center in Southfield, Michigan; when it opened in 1954, Northland was the country's largest shopping center as well as the first regional shopping center. The architects planned for sculpture to play an important role in the shopping center's courts and malls.
Fredericks designed this sculpture with children in mind. As with his other large animal sculptures, he gave the bear a benevolent quality so it would not frighten children; this bear could be a child's best friend. The contrast of the massive body of the bear with the frail body of the boy on his back emphasizes this special relationship; the bear's head is down. Its erect ears and furrowed brow suggest interest in a viewer at this low eye level. Fredericks' portrayal of the bear is not realistic, but like several of his animal sculptures, he portrayed the bear as in a child's imagination; the sculpture at Northland still attracts as much attention today as when it was first installed, pleasing children and adults alike. In 2016, the sculpture was moved to the lobby of the Southfield Public Library when Northland Mall closed. Despite similarities between this sculpture and the characters in Walt Disney's movie The Jungle Book, Fredericks disavowed any influence from Disney, The Jungle Book published in 1894, or its author, Rudyard Kipling.
Fredericks said that he wanted to make a sculpture of a boy and bear because it would be fun. On display at the Fredricks Sculpture Gallery is an earlier version of this sculpture in bronze. A similar casting is on display in the children's room of the Grosse Pointe Public Library and at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids. Fredericks was commissioned to sculpt a 6-foot-tall crucifix, but instead designed this 28-foot, full-scale model, for a bronze to be placed at the Indian River Catholic Shrine in Indian River, Michigan; the bronze Corpus is mounted on a 55-foot-tall redwood cross. When erected in 1959, it was believed to be the largest crucifix in the world. Since a 65-foot crucifix was erected in the cemetery of St. Thomas Catholic Church hear Bardstown, Kentucky however the Corpus on this work is only 14 feet in height; the Indian River figure required only three years to complete, however the plaster model on which it was based required seven-years of restoration before being put on permanent display at the Fredricks Sculpture Museum.
It suffered from neglect during the two-decades it was in storage at the foundry in Scandinavia after the bronze was cast. In his depiction Fredericks chose not to depict the pain a
George D. Mason
George DeWitt Mason was an American architect who practiced in Detroit, Michigan in the latter part of the 19th and early decades of the 20th centuries. George Mason was born in the son of James H. and Zelda E. Mason. In 1870 the family moved to Detroit, he began his architectural career working for Detroit architect Hugh Smith in 1875, but this only lasted a summer. After this he moved to the firm of Henry T. Brush, where he worked for the first nine months without pay. Mason started out assigned to some specific detailing work on the George O. Robinson House and the Detroit Public Library. One of the first buildings in which Mason received equal billing for the design was the Ransom Gillis House. In 1878 he joined with Zachariah Rice to form the firm Rice; this partnership lasted until 1898. From 1884 until 1896 Albert Kahn worked with Mason and Rice, he returned to partner with Mason for a few years early in the 20th Century. A number of Mason's works, either by himself or as part of Mason & Rice, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Mason died on June 3, 1948, at his home in the Wiltshire Apartments building, at the age of 91. All buildings are located in Detroit.

Pewabic Pottery is a ceramic studio and school at 10125 East Jefferson Avenue, Michigan. Founded in 1903, the studio is known for its iridescent glazes, some of which grace notable buildings such as the Shedd Aquarium and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception; the pottery continues in operation today, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991. The pottery was founded in 1903 by the artist and teacher Mary Chase Perry Stratton and Horace James Caulkins, her business partner. Caulkins was considered a high-heat and kiln specialist, developed the "Revelation kiln". Mary Perry Stratton was "the artistic and marketing force." The collaboration of two and their blend of art and technology gave the pottery its distinctive qualities as Detroit's contribution to the International Arts and Crafts movement and exemplified the American Craftsman Style. The word Pewabic is derived from the Ojibwa word "wabic", which means metal, or "bewabic", which means iron or steel, referring to the "Pewabic" Upper Peninsula copper mine where Ms. Stratton walked with her father.
The company is well known for the unusual iridescent glaze covering the pottery and tiles created in a manner outlined by the International Arts and Crafts movement. In 1991, Pewabic Pottery was designated as a National Historic Landmark. See List of National Historic Landmarks in Michigan; as Michigan's only historic pottery, the center continues to operate in a 1907 Tudor Revival building as a non-profit educational institution. They offer classes in ceramics, hold exhibitions, sell pottery made in house and sell artists from across the United States, offer design and fabrication services for public and private buildings; the museum's exhibits focus on the company's role in the history of Detroit, the Arts and Crafts movement in America and the development of ceramic art in the country. The galleries showcase new works by modern ceramic artists. Pewabic Pottery produces many kinds of hand made decorative objects, they are part of the collections of the Freer Gallery of Art. Examples abound in the External Links hereafter.
Under Mary Stratton's artistic leadership, Pewabic Pottery employees created lamps and architectural tiles. Architectural pieces have been a staple in Pewabic's history, they were known for their iridescent glazes. Architectural tiles were used in churches, concert halls, libraries, museums and public buildings; the studio's work graces the rest of the United States. Noteworthy examples include Herzstein Hall at Rice University in Houston and the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Illinois. Detailed maps of public installations in the Detroit Metropolitan Area and the U. S. A. are available. See Architectural tile infra. Notable was the company's work at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D. C. consisting of arches outlined with iridescent Pewabic tile, huge ceramic medallions set in the ceiling, fourteen Stations of the Cross for the crypt. Pewabic's design team continues to create ornate tile conceptions for private buildings. Contemporary installations include Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Medical Center Children's Hospital, five Detroit People Mover stations, Third Man Records, stations for the Q-Line, the Herald Square in New York City.
Pewabic tile was in great demand in Detroit and the southeastern Michigan area for the use in buildings and it can be found in many of the area's finest structures. These include: Belle Isle Aquarium, Belle Isle Park Detroit, Michigan Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Michigan Charles Lang Freer House, 71 East Ferry Avenue Detroit, Michigan Christ Church, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Compuware World Headquarters, Michigan Cowles House, East Lansing, Michigan Cranbrook Kingswood School, many facilities Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan Detroit People Mover many stations, Michigan Detroit Public Library Children's Room, Michigan Detroit Zoological Park, Royal Oak, Michigan Edward H.
