Edward V. Valentine Sculpture Studio
The studio and artwork of prominent Richmond sculptor Edward Virginius Valentine (1838-1930) offers the rare opportunity to see a large collection of 19th-century artworks, by an individual artist, within the setting that they were created. Well-known pieces include the full-size plaster models of Valentine’s Recumbent Lee and Thomas Jefferson. Dozens of Civil War figures are represented through portrait sculpture, and Valentine's monumental and classical works are well represented. The building is one of only four surviving 19th century sculpture studios in the United States. The Edward V. Valentine Sculpture Studio is a member of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios group of National Trust Associate Sites. Permanent exhibit at the Valentine Richmond History Center.
