“Enchantment” by Dario Viterbo

East Entrance Foyer, Mullins Library

This sculpture, “The Enchantment,” was created by Viterbo in 1942 and was shown in New York at the Sculptors Guild Annual Show in the Argent Galleries in 1950. Images of the sculpture from that show appeared in The New York Times and The Art Digest, where it was described as making “cleaner use of bronze to express simple convex and concave sculptural volumes” (Art Digest, April 1, 1950: page 9). “The Enchantment” was purchased by Marie Wilson Howells and donated to the University of Arkansas in 1956.
