Emma Stebbins created the bronze statue at Bethesda Fountain in 1868, making her the FIRST woman artist to receive a major art commission in NYC.
Today, this neoclassical is one of the most well-known fountains in the world! It is sometimes referred to as
Angel of the Waters, with the arms
outstretched, delivering a blessing on the water pouring from around her feet and into the basin at the bottom of the fountain.
