Schwarcz Greenbaum, 1893-1986, started her artistic
career as a painter at the Arts Students League and later worked
primarily as a sculptor in bronze and marble. She was against fascism
and worked to improve the lives and rights of artists, especially during
the McCarthy era. Greenbaum was a member of the Sculptors Guild, an
avant-garde group, and a founder of Artists Equity. This monumental work
(in size and imagery) depicts a tragic human figure emerging from the
background and expresses the artistís concerns about world peace and
her love of humanity.
