Artist’s Comments:

Limited Edition series of twelve numbered issues, each one cast in bronze and mounted on a polished stone base (26″ high overall). The sculpture is based upon a 1840’s  daguerreotype of Isaac Jefferson, a slave (though not the son) of Thomas Jefferson. For background on Isaac, I read “Memoirs of a Monticello Slave,” Isaac’s recollections of his life, taken down by Charles Campbell, also from the 1840’s). Please inquire.
