About the Artist
Elaine Franz Witten is an award-winning bronze sculptor and painter in oil and watercolor. Her bronze sculptures, which are realistic and very expressive, have been shown in national and international exhibitions, and been awarded numerous prizes. Favorite subjects are animals (including numerous birds and horses), human figures, and instruments in bronze. She uses the lost wax process of bronze casting.
Ms. Witten also paints landscapes and figurative paintings. Her semi-abstract paintings are atmospheric and imbued with a reverence for the natural world, an outgrowth of her Vermont surroundings.
Ms. Witten’s commissions and corporate works are on public display in Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, and Alaska. Her bronze sculptures are in private collections across the US, in Canada, and in the private collection of King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia. Her sculpture has also been purchased by the US Department of State as presidential gifts for dignitaries. She is represented by galleries in Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
