Modern Art Foundry is a fine art metal casting and conservation facility in NYC that over the years has completed a number of projects related to the US Civil War. Most likely our grandest conservation and restoration project was the stabilization and bronze casting of the four zinc civil war figures that were installed at Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn in the late 1800's. Following this project as well as a restoration project on both northern and southern monuments, Modern Art Foundry in association with their design group "MAF Designs", commissioned four small portraits: Abraham Lincoln and three soldiers.
The three soldiers are not intended to be any one soldier of the north or south, but a cross reference to all soldiers and officers during that time of profound conflict in our country.
