Frederick Hart

Frederick Hart Sculptures in Bronze, Acrylic and Stone


Frederick Hart was born on June 7, 1943 in Atlanta, Georgia. At 55 years old, Hart died in Baltimore, Maryland. He was a renowned American sculptor who, up to this day, is acknowledged through his patented works. Hart is the son of an unsuccessful actress and a US Navy member, both Presbyterians. His mother died in the year 1945 due to scarlet fever. His father, on the other hand, remarried two years after and later on moved to Virginia in the year 1956. Hart. had stepsiblings whom he lived with for a number of years.
Frederick Hart, as a child, showed no interest in academics. He had a couple of years repeating school years, but was able to go to the University of South Carolina in 1959. When he was a student there, he joined protests, was arrested, and kicked out. A few years after, Hart’s sister died of leukemia. It was that time when Hart was able to attend a sculpture class and was immediately mesmerized by the concept. His mourning, which he spent learning from his sculpture class, was later on transformed into a great work of art called “Family.”

His first winning piece was entitled “Ex Nihilo.” Another popular Frederick Hart sculpture in Bronze was the “Three Servicemen,” also known as Frederick Hart Three Soldiers.
