William Walcutt, Pulling Down the Statue of George III at Bowling Green


William Walcutt’s 1857 painting, Pulling Down the Statue of George III at Bowling Green is reproduced in David McCullogh’s 1776: The Illustrated Edition, published in 2007.

Walcutt’s painting is also reproduced on the cover of Christian G. Fritz’s American Sovereigns: The People and America’s Constitutional Tradition Before the Civil War, Cambridge University Press, 2008.

Lafayette has been selected by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as one of 183 college and university art museums across the United States to receive a gift of original Warhol art. Lafayette will receive approximately 100 original Polaroid pictures and 50 black and white prints selected by Jenny Moore, curator of the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. The program hopes that the gift will enable a wide range of people from communities across the country to view and study this relatively unknown area of Warhol’s work. By placing the Warhol works into the College’s permanent collection, the gift will enrich the breadth and depth of Lafayette’s holdings. – 2008
