Artist's Description

“…by the door, he put the heavy simpering figure of an angel.
…it had come from Carrara in Italy, and it held a stone lily delicately in one hand. The other hand was lifted in benediction, it was poised clumsily upon the ball of one phthisic foot, and its stupid white face wore a smile of soft stone idiocy.”

The marble angel sculpture allegedly referred to in Thomas Wolfe’s book, Look Homeward Angel, stands in Oakdale Cemetery in Hendersonville, North Carolina. This is Wolfe’s angel.
