Daniel Webster, Parian Figure After Thomas Ball, G.W. Nichols, Boston, 1853


Daniel Webster, Parian Figure After Thomas Ball, G.W. Nichols, Boston, 1853, entire view 1

Ball modeled this figure on the eve of the Statesman’s death and later received a first-
class gold medal from the Charitable Mechanics Association. During Ball’s long career
he modeled several portraits of Daniel Webster (1782-1852). In 1853 the sculptor sold
the reproduction rights for this statuette to George Ward Nichols, a Boston art dealer,
for $500.00 The artist was relieved to relinquish any further responsibility as he found
the details of copywriting, production and piracy to be vexing.
