Henry Weber Mitchell
Mitchell made a mark on Philadelphia. The bronze relief horses of the fountain on the East Terrace of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the winged bull that symbolizes Jefferson University, and other works are installed prominently across the city at museums and universities.
Mitchell, who had a degree in economics from Princeton University and was an executive of a motor company, came to Philadelphia in 1948 when he decided to switch careers and study art at Temple University's Tyler School of Art. After receiving his Master’s degree he lived in Italy from 1950 to 1952, where he studied sculpture on a Fulbright Fellowship.
