Description

Bronze with green patina of Don Quixote on black marble base.

Cervantes' "Don Quixote de la Mancha" is a masterpiece of world literature. It is as well known and loved today as when it was first issued in 1605. Cervantes glorified Knight Errantry with his parody of the romances of chivalry. Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho Panza roamed the Spanish countryside in search of adventures. Fredericks' sculpture relays the whimsical quality of Don Quixote in his expression, posture, and in the method he is modeled. The form is highly stylized and hard-edged. The surface is smooth and there are few details. The Main Exhibit Gallery displays two versions; this one in bronze and another in nickel-plated bronze.

Cast in 1988.
