Young Walt Whitman Singing
Alexander Calder, c. 1935
Plaster model submitted by Alexander Calder to a competition held in New York City.
The sculpture is placed in front of the window of the Walt Whitman birthplace on Long Island. The window has the impression of a very well-known daguerreotype of the young Walt Whitman in carpenter's garb which was used for the first edition of "Leaves of Grass."
I added a little texture to my photo...

Our thoughts go out to the Haitian people and the devastating earthquake that hit their country yesterday. Help is on the way according to President Obama.
Nous sommes avec vous!
