“When Now Becomes Then”
A cast sculpture of a young woman sitting, drawing the waterfall
"When Now Becomes Then" is a bronze cast sculpture created by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. This statue is very life-like because it was created by casting a mold of a real person, then using the mold to form the bronze model. Johnson is best known for casting statues, like this one was done, of real people doing everyday activities. Here the statue is sitting along the riverside as if sketching a picture of the river and its falls. The extremely realistic imagery achieved by the casting and by the painting of the statue is the technique called "trompe l'oeil." Johnson is also famous not only for his art, but for being an controversial heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune. The name plaque near the sculpture reads: When Now Becomes Then, By J. Seward Johnson, Jr.
