Adolf Alexander Weinman, born in 1870 in Karlsruhe, Germany, set foot in America at a tender age of 10. Passionate about art and its infinite possibilities, Weinman pursued formal education at the esteemed Cooper Union College, attending enriching evening sessions. As he honed his artistic skills further, he found himself studying at the Art School of the Student League of New York, a prestigious institution renowned for fostering great talent.

In 1904, Weinman gave wings to his dreams and opened his own studio, a place that today symbolizes his undying contribution to American sculpture. His works, imbued with a distinctive blend of German legacy and American idealism, continue to captivate art aficionados worldwide. This intricately designed Icarus sculpture is no exception.
