Frederick Hart


Frederick Hart (American, 1943 - 1999) is undeniably a master sculptor able to create beautiful figurative sculpture out of cast marble, bronze, and acrylic. His work is both realistic and cerebral with a strong sense of sensuality and religion. The clear acrylic Lucite sculptures are especially interesting in the way they can be viewed from any angle as they gracefully reflect and capture the light. All of his pieces are very detailed, figurative and, spiritual, reminiscent of the works by old Renaissance masters such as Michelangelo and Bernini. Read More

Frederick Hart was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1943. His mother died only two years after his birth and his father remarried soon after. When he was thirteen years old, the family relocated to Virginia, near Washington D.C., where he ended up failing the ninth grade. He was sent to South Carolina to live with his aunt and repeat the year of school, but when he received a near-perfect score, the principal helped the now sixteen year-old Hart to apply and gain admission to the University of South Carolina in 1959. Seven years later his sister was diagnosed with leukemia and passed away the next year. It was then, during his period of grieving, that he “stumbled into a sculpture class at the Corcoran School of Art and was blown away.”

In 1975, Hart won the opportunity to create the west façade for the Washington National Cathedral. It was there that he spent the next ten years sculpting the story of creation for the world’s sixth largest Gothic cathedral. From there he created such iconic pieces as Three Soldiers for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and The Cross of the Millennium, which was presented to Pope John Paul II in a private ceremony at the Vatican in Rome. Hart was once quoted saying: “Art must touch our lives, our fears and cares—evoke our dreams and give hope to the darkness.”

Frederick Hart’s sculptures are collected worldwide by major galleries, museums, and private collectors. Truly innovative and masterful, his pieces are highly sought after and cherished. Art Leaders Gallery is proud to be the exclusive representative for the Frederick Hart Collection in the Michigan area.

    Fredrick Hart Daughters of Odessa, one of Frederick Hart’s masterworks is an allegorical sculpture in remembrance of the innocent victims of repression in the twentieth century. Hart, like Rodin in the Burghers of Calais, has chosen the theme of martyrdom to underscore the idea of the fragility of life and the enduring values of beauty. The maquette is Hart’s first impulse -- the birth of the concept. Daughters of Odessa, Maquette contains all the desire and intent of this significant sculpture. It provides an important insight into the creative process of one of America’s greatest sculptors. When you touch the work, it is as if you touched the hand of the sculptor as he molded the work into being.

    In Born of Light, Frederick Hart gives new insight to the phenomena of creation. Vaporous forms emerge from the mystic, whispery depths of unawareness into the light of awakening and understanding...born of light. For Hart, the embedded figures create a spiritual presence an inner grace that hints at what will be revealed in the outer image. The juxtaposition of the inner and outer figures conveys the powerful message of the evolutionary ongoing process that is essential to the understanding of creation in a contemporary way. We become participants, not merely observers, as Born of Light draws us into experiencing the ongoing process of creation.
