Molded directly from the original, our sculpture reproduces a work by Charles Albert Lopez (American, b. Mexico, 1869–1906) now in the Museum's collection. The original sculpture by Lopez depicts a sprinter in a crouched position, his muscles tensed and face set in concentration, as he anticipates the start of a race. At the time the original sculpture was made, the crouching start had recently been introduced into track events. Lopez’s The Sprinter
was exhibited at the St. Louis fair, and a cast of the work was selected by the United States Navy to be used on a track trophy.
Bonded bronze, hand-patinated. 16 1/2''H x 22 1/2''W x 10''D.
