Untitled (Nymph) (1933)

Jessie Duncan Wiggin

Jessie Duncan Wiggin’s 1933 bronze cast of a dancer was intended for placement in a garden. The artist hearkens back to the myths of ancient Greece in this depiction of a Nymph, that is, a spirit of nature responsible for protecting the environment around her. She is captured in motion, engaged in a joyous celebration that honors the beauty of art and nature combined as it is in the Cadddell Sculpture Garden.
