This is my original drawing of Swann Memorial Fountain.

Swann Memorial Fountain is in the center of Logan Circle. The fountain memorializes Dr. Wilson Cary Swann, the founder of the Philadelphia Fountain Society. It was designed by Alexander Stirling Calder, son of Alexander Milne Calder (who sculpted the William Penn statue on top of City Hall), and the architect Wilson Eyre. The fountain was completed in 1924. The sculpture features three Native American figures which symbolize the area’s major streams. The girl leaning against the swan represents the Wissahickon Creek. The woman holding the neck of a swan represents the Schuykill River. The man reaching for his bow represents the Delaware River.

Using pictures as reference, I drew this using a Micron Pigma pen, Tombow Marker, and graphite on Arches hot pressed watercolor paper. The drawing is roughly 7 x 10 inches (17.78 x 25.4 cm).

This is the perfect small gift for a native Philadelphian, someone interested in art history, or a person who wants to have an original piece of art on their wall.
