Description

The Great Bartholdi Statue – Liberty Enlightening the World, 1885. Currier & Ives (American, active New York, 1857–1907). Hand-colored lithograph.

In 1885, the New York printmaking firm Currier & Ives illustrated a new spectacle in New York harbor. A gift of friendship from the French people to the United States, Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi's (French, 1834–1904) Statue of Liberty was inspired by the American abolition of slavery, and depicts Lady Liberty raising the torch of Enlightenment with the broken chains of tyranny at her feet. Here, the landmark is portrayed from an elevated point of view, providing a grand vista that includes Manhattan and parts of the Brooklyn and New Jersey shorelines.
