note: Commissioned by the motion picture director Rex Ingram for the premiere of his 1921 film ‘The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse’. This critically acclaimed and ground-breaking film was the highest grossing film of the year and propelled its star Rudolph Valentino into national prominence. Lee Lawrie is widely known for his public works including the Atlas bronze in Rockefeller Center and generally did not accept private commissions. He believed art should be enjoyed by the masses and not the select few who could afford it. Ingram however was one of Lawries’ favorite students from Yale, and it was the film’s subject matter (the destructive and ruinous nature of war) that appealed to the sculptor’s sensibilities and so this was one of the few private commissions he executed.
