Rip Van Winkle





"Richard Masloski's ability to recreate a character in sculpture that had been created by Washington Irving in literature impressed me. Rip Van Winkle's tattered and wrinkled clothes, his overgrown beard and nails, his toes bursting through the shoes and his recumbent pose gives the viewer a dramatic sense of his reawakening. It so perfectly embodies the famous character in the Irving story."

Neil Estern, past President of the            
National Sculpture Society and sculptor  
of the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC






Rip Van Winkle faces the setting sun ...
His long journey is complete, from model to monument.
On a peaceful knoll on Main Street in Irvington  .. Rip is home at last.

Thank You
