Jean-Marie Appriou: The Horses On View

Jean-Marie Appriou- The Horses On View

January 1 - August 27

Grand Army Plaza

Fifth Avenue at 59th Street Midtown
New York


Suggested Ages:

Walk by, under and through massive equine sculptures  by French sculptor Jean-Marie Appriou. These surreal silvery sentinels at the entrance to Central Park, inspired by the carriage horses  and gilded monument of William Tecumseh Sherman on horseback nearby,  evoke fantastical beasts with hybrid characteristics and human qualities –  a daunting gateway formed by an armor-clad warrior, a forest of legs of entwined lovers and a sphinx-like mystic seated on its haunches and draped in an embellished cape.
