Death Mask -- Life Mask

Louise McCagg

January 2007


Under Alma's auspices, New York-based sculptor Louise McCagg participated in this exhibition at the Museum of Literature Petöfi, which focused on the traditional practice of making death masks of well-known individuals. Death masks in the Museum’s collection include Liszt, Beethoven, Nietzsche, Hegel, and Brecht. McCagg contributed a number of life masks of prominent Hungarian poets, all cast in New York, including Gyögy Petri, Lászlo Baranszky-Job, and Sara Karig. Subsequently, she donated the masks to the museum's collection.
