The Statue of Liberty is really called The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was designed by artist and sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi. He had his statue placed on a federally owned island called "Bedloe's" in New York Harbor because he said, "the harbor was where people got their first view of the New World." It was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. France paid for the statue and America paid for its pedestal and foundation. In 1886, it was dedicated, designated as a National Monument in 1924 and restored for her centennial on July 4, 1986. Note the details in the painting - the pedestal and the statue atop, the American flag on the right side and a jet flying out of one of the airports. The detail in this painting is extraordinarily fine! The artist remembers that it was a beautiful sunny day when he photographed this magnificent setting. This print is available in open edition and as a collectible. Individuals have even used this print framed with two openings - one for the print and the other for a photograph.
