Curator Pick of the Month

Title: The Runner
Artist: Germaine Richier
Creation Date: 1954
Origin: France
Medium: Bronze

In light of the 118th annual Boston Marathon on April 21st, Le Coureur (The Runner) seemed an appropriate choice for this month’s curator’s pick. Created in 1954 by the renowned sculptor Germaine Richier, The Runner exaggerates and highlights the sense of solitude felt by a runner caught in their own thoughts. The scars and bumps on the surface of the sculpture suggest the vulnerability of the human spirit, this tormented appearance recalls the general anxiety in post-war Europe in the 50’s and was employed often in Richier’s works during this time. Donated by Ambassador Earle Mack, it is on display outside of the Earle Mack School of Law.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
