Berlin, bust of Irving Berlin antique white


  • Details
    I planned to do Irving back in 2012, but put him off....until someone who was collecting my Great American Songbook busts asked me when I was going to get around to sculpting him! Apologetically, I got down to it...and did him singing "Someday I'm going to murder the bugler." However, the nameplate on the bronze one shown says he is "Irving 'God Bless America' Berlin" he is in his WWI uniform it wasn't appropriate to call him "Irving 'White Christmas' Berlin" and naturally we wouldn't want to name him after the song he's actually singing!

    NOTE: the nameplate I chose to look super-antiqued.... it is not cracked or broken but part of the idea that his songs are from a century ago now.
