Spotlight on the Collection

MAM’s bimonthly series, Spotlight on the Collection, highlights artworks from the permanent collection and original scholarship by MAM staff. One of the most recognizable works in MAM's permanent collection, Crown for the Victor (1896) was given to the Montclair Art Museum by one of its co-founders, Florence Rand Lang. William Couper completed the sculpture during his last year living in Florence and took inspiration from the Italian setting to perfect its neoclassical style.
