Artist: Berta Margoulies
Medium: Bronze

Berta Margoulies' sculptures join her to a group of revivalist sculptors who worked in various genre subjects, adding abstractions and expressionist distortions, "exaggerated proportions" and "angular faceting."

Due to a lack of materials during the early 1900's, Berta Margoulies' sculptures were made from a variety of materials, including-beaten lead and hammered bronze. This sculpture, titled "Adolescence" is a good example of the archaic style of sculpture that looked back to the work of the ancient Greeks, for its inspiration.

 

 Adolescence is located on the east side of the Pergola.
