2001, cast after an original by Paul Manship at the Mead Art Museum, Amherst College, for Graham and Ann Gund, Cambridge; 2011, gift of Graham and Ann Gund to the MFA. (Accession Date: June 22, 2011) NOTE: In 1917, an original pair of sculptures "Indian Hunter" and "Pronghorn Antelope" were commissioned from the artist by Herbert L. Pratt of Glen Cove, N.Y.; in 1945 these were bequeathed from Pratt's estate to the Mead Art Museum of Amherst College. In 2001, Amherst College entered an agreement with Graham Gund to permit an edition of two to be made from the original sculptures, with the condition that they would be donated to charitable institutions.
