            Property from a Private Collection, Hilton Head Island, SC Description: Robert Cook (American, 1921-2017), The Head, Bronze, 1959, signed R. Cook, Dec. 6, '58, 'Morgen Tod Belsen' 1.45 after a drawing by W. Congdon, depicting an abstract head on a wood stand. Robert Cook (Boston/Italy, 1921-2017) was an American sculptor who moved to Italy after World War II. He passed away in early March, 2017. During his lifetime, Cook achieved worldwide fame as an "artist who can capture motion in fluid bronze." Born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1921, Cook studied with the classical sculptor George Demetrios. His sculpting career was put on hold, however, when the United States entered World War II, whereupon he took up service in U.S. Army Corps of Engineering as a map and model maker. After the conclusion of the war, Cook moved to Paris to study with Marcel Gaumont at L’Academie des Beaux Arts; and later, in 1948, he moved to Rome with a Fulbright Grant for more advanced study. Cook was an innovator in the “lost wax” process of casting, creating sculptures that were larger than had previously been possible. Cook has been honored with prizes from the Prix de Rome, the National Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Tiffany Foundation. He was a member of the National Sculpture Society, the Sculptors Guild and was an honorary trustee of the Sculpture Center. Measurements: Height: of bronze 7 in. x Width: 11 in. x Depth: 7 in. Condition: Good condition, light wear, some scratches to wood base.
