Description

Graphite on tracing paper
12.5" x 5.25"

Fredericks designed this series for a national products competition in 1939 in hopes that they would be placed on a government building in Washington DC, but the building was never built. The series consisted of 12 reliefs. Three are located at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum: "Cotton Pickers," "Colt and Pigs," and "Steers". Later Marshall grouped these three with "Sheep (The Guests Have Arrived)" and "Chimpanzee (Philosopher").
