    Description

    Model Plaques from Dean Monument at Griffith Observatory. Full-scale foundry models of the two bronze plaques that form part of the Dean monument at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Made by artist Kenneth Kendall in 1985 and presented as a proposal to the Observatory, they read in part: "This is not a monument to a rebel, those were only roles he played. James Dean was an American original who on a basis of high school honors and in the period of five years time rose to the very pinnacle of the theatrical profession and through the magic of motion pictures lives on in legend." Both are in Excellent condition and framed to an overall size of 15" x 18". From the James Dean Museum archive.
