Poe Bust

As of January 2020, The Providence Athenaeum now proudly owns its very own bust of Edgar Allan Poe. This was made possible by the efforts of both myself and the Athenaeum, after the success of their “Ravenous” exhibit on Poe.

The bust is from Edmond Quinn’s, sculpted for the Bronx Society of Arts and Sciences in 1909. The Athenaeum’s is a copy of mine, which is a copy of the original plaster bust by Quinn owned by the Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia. I obtained my copy directly from the museum in 2012.
