Heads of the Merchandise Mart
They all depict great heros (if such a word is appropriate) of mass merchandising.
Here's three of them -- suitable for comparison -- the foreground head is done by Milton Horn -- and I think the one in back was by Charles Umlauf.
This is the Horn head --- is it supposed to be Marshall Field ? -- and it exempifies his approach to sculpture in architecture.
The other heads certainly have their own, endearing qualities -- but they tend to relate to their columns as a cherry might to a toothpick -- while Horn has treated the column as part of the sculpture - and vice-versa -- and it seems to have that Baroque feeling of the life force -- seething within its masses.
(I'll come back another week to see how they photograph in the sun)
