C. Paul Jennewein


German-born American sculptor probably best known today for the polychrome figures in the pediment (1933) of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

More of his architectural design works include British Empire Building at Rockefeller Center, Manhattan (1932); Justice Department Building in Washington, D.C. (1934); and Two panels inside the White House, Washington, D.C. (1954); among others.

He also executed a number of medals during his career. In 1933, Jennewein sculpted Glory and Fame, the seventh issue in the long running Society of Medalists series. He also designed the inaugural medal for President Harry S. Truman in 1949.

Jennewein died on 22 February 1978, aged 87, at his home in Larchmont, New York.
