Welcome Sculptures by Giuseppe Moretti at the Highland Avenue Entrance to Highland Park

 

One of Pittsburgh’s two most famous and most prolific sculptors (the other being Frank Vittor), Giuseppe Moretti decorated the entrances to Highland Park with extraordinary bronzes. Note that these two opposite figures are matching but entirely different: Moretti sculpted them from two different models and posed them differently, thus making literally twice as much work for himself as an ordinary sculptor would.

  1. One can observe at least four reasons why the sculptor would have wanted to take twice as long on this project and collect twice the needed inspiration.

    Snark aside, this is a wonderful set. The kind of expensive flourish that’s completely lacking in modern architecture.
