SEFF WEIDL (1915–1972)
The Philosopher, 1974, BronzeGift of Samuel I. and Maria Shuman

This attenuated figure looks down on the passersby from its location on the

southwest wall of the old Law School Building. Seff Weidl lived in Germany and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. Though his subjects were based on classical motifs, his central subject was always man.
