"Yours is a voice such as one hears once in a hundred years," so exclaimed conductor Arturo Toscanini when he heard mezzo-soprano Marian Anderson (1897-1993) sing in 1935. A bronze sculpture of Anderson, now on exhibition at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts, was made by another admirer, the Romanian-born American sculptor Nicolaus Koni (1911-2000), who had heard her sing many times. Koni emphasized Andersons' high cheekbones and heavy eyebrows, giving the bronze sculpture a rich brown patina, or finish.
