Figurative Works at the Chrysler Museum of Art: Bronzes and Metal Works

Today I ran across a valuable Museum Art Resource in the form of the Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Va. There are quite a number of figurative works in their online inventory and I culled through those I thought notable. The Museum has a long distinguished history since its founding in 1939 and sponsorship of its founder Walter P. Chrysler, Jr. who presented the bulk of his collection to the city of Norfolk before his death. Their inventory consists of over thirty thousand objects. All of these images posted are courtesy of the Museum for review purposes so please honor any copyright that may be applicable. I will post them in several posts since posting large numbers of illustrations with the editor provided by the Google Blogger can be a pain in the petoot. Here is the first section, other sections will appear above:
