Fashionably Late


Architect Cass Gilbert asked sculptor James Earle Fraser to create two statues that would flank the monumental entrance to the Supreme Court Building. Fraser wrote Gilbert saying the figures should have meaning and “not be perfunctory and purely decorative‚Ķ[and that they should] be a prelude to the spirit of the building.” One figure, titled Contemplation of Justice, is a variation on the ancient theme of Lady Justice, while the other figure, Authority of Law, is “powerful, erect, and vigilant,” and holds a tablet of law and a sword. Fraser was so intent on achieving the proper scale in relation to the building that, when the building opened for its first Court session on October 7, 1935, the statues had not been installed. It was not until a month later that they were finally set in place by crane.
