Little Bear Fountain

German and Italian, 1937

Cast bronze with green and brown patina, stone, brass

Brown University

The bronze came to us with heavy coats of paint and graffiti covering the fine modeled details of the bronze and the original patina. We removed the paint and graffiti, and repatinated the bronze after consulting with the Brown Campus Curator about the probable original patina and the overall campus aesthetic.
