FATHER AND SON by Louise Bourgeois
Louise Bourgeois

Above are pictures of other works by the artist

2004-2005, stainless steel and aluminum fountain and bronze bell, 36 feet by 26 feet (fountain). Figures 6 feet 5 inches and 4 feet 9 inches. Gift of the estate of Stu Smailes. This fountain had an odd origin. It's the result of a million-dollar bequest to the city of Seattle from the late Stu Smailes. Smailes made his gift with the stipulation that it be spent for a fountain featuring one or more realistic nude male figures. You can imagine the blanched faces of bureaucrats when they got the good news!
