Petulant French Sculptor, His Quest for Immortality and the Real Story of the Statue of Liberty
Mitchell portrays French sculptor, Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, in an unfavorable light. She depicts him as man obsessed with finding a venue for his colossal statue because it would be a way to immortalize him. Under the guise of a gift to the United States, he struggled for years to collect funds for the project. He travelled across America and expressed his disdain for the people, food, culture and the land. He said his statue would be “Liberty enlightening the World,” but according to Mitchell’s opinion, it sounds like the sculptor could have used some enlightenment.
