Figure CARL MOSE Outstanding American Sculptor in a Brilliant Demonstration Program, that Is Full of Wit and Humor KIMBALL BUILDING Chicago 4, Ill. Phone: Harrison 7-8723 THE REDPATH BUREAU 24 W. 45th St., Suite 5-N New York 19, N. Y. Phone: M Urray Hill 7-7073 CARL MOSE CARL MOSE, outstanding American sculptor, combines wit and art in his great demonstration programs. With the use of beautiful slides he discusses modern and ancient sculpture. Then he will model the head of a person chosen from the audience. Working deftly with the tools of his art, he will transform a mass of clay into a life-like head. All through his program there is a fine flow of humor, giving his sculpture-demonstration an unusually high entertainment rating. During the war, Carl Mose spent 38 months as a Captain in the Air Corps, where he did invaluable service in the Army Information and Educational Program. His exceptional speaking ability was put to good use in Guam, Saipan, the Hawaiian Islands, etc. He addressed thousands of men and officers. The works of Carl Mose have been and are now exhibited all over the United States. Many of his pieces have taken top honors in such places as the Washington Independent Exhibition, Art Institute of Minneapolis and the Washington Society of Artists. He is represented in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Carleton College and numerous private collections. In addition to his extensive architectural sculptures on the Potomac Electric Power Company Building, Washington, D. C., the Department of Agriculture Building, and Washington Cathedral, he is represented by two large limestone figures adjoining the Federal Building at Saline, Kansas. He has done small decorative works for Meridian Hill and Potomac Parks in Washington, larger monuments in Old Crossing State Park, Minnesota, Fort Sumter, S. C., and the Battlefield of the Wilderness, Va. He executed commissions for decorative sculpture in the Century of Progress Exposition. His portrait busts and bas-reliefs of well-known figures in government and professional life are installed in several universities, government buildings, etc. For some years he was in charge of sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art, and later was instructor in sculpture at Washington University School of Fine Arts, St. Louis. He has carried on professional work in New York, Washington and St. Louis. He now has a large studio in St. Louis. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Carl Mose has lived most of his life in this country; he has studied sculpture at the Art Institute, Chicago, the Art Students' League and Beaux-Arts Academy, New York, and has traveled widely over Europe in his study of sculpture.
