Statues and statuesque in Carroll County

By Kevin E. Dayhoff – Eagle Archives, Carroll Eagle – Baltimore Sun. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0621-20150619-story.html

Many would be surprised to learn that Blaze Starr, who passed away on June 15, is not the only creative statuesque figure with a Carroll County connection.

Another famous Carroll County artist, William Henry Rinehart, now has his works of sculpture on display at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.

Starr was a famous stripper and burlesque performer, another exhibitor of sorts. According to an article in the Sun, "In her day [she] was perhaps Baltimore's best-known figure." She was "a successful businesswoman as owner of the 2 O'Clock Club on East Baltimore Street, [who] was so nonthreatening to local morals that she appeared in an advertising campaign for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co."

A national celebrity, many locales throughout the country claim her, including New Orleans, where she had a torrid affair with the then-governor of Louisiana, Earl Long.

While she began a lifelong relationship with Baltimore in 1950, many may not be aware that for many years she called Eldersburg, in southern Carroll County, her home.

An artist of many talents, she was a striking redhead who was friendly and talkative. She also owned a store at the then-Carrolltowne Center, where she sold her handmade jewelry. That was where this writer interviewed her on several occasions in the 1980s.

The work of Rinehart, meantime, can be "seen … in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Baltimore Museum of Art," according to the Walters Art Museum website.

Rinehart was born into a prosperous farming family in Union Bridge on Sept. 13, 1825 Read more here: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0621-20150619-story.html

While we were in Union Bridge for dinner on July 5, 2007, we had the opportunity to study and admire the sculpture at the corner of North Main Street and East Broadway, which is a reproduction of “Love Reconciled with Death” by Union Bridge native William Henry Rinehart (1825-1874.)

“Love Reconciled with Death” by William Henry Rinehart in Union Bridge



Reproduction of “Love Reconciled with Death” by Union Bridge native William Henry Rinehart Corner of North Main Street and East Broadway Kevin Dayhoff July 5, 2007

According to an undated brochure, “Union Bridge Walking Tour,” which I retrieved in June 2009:

“‘Love Reconciled with Death’ was sculpted by Union Bridge native William Henry Rinehart (1825-1874) as a memorial to the wife of Baltimore art connoisseur and philanthropist, William T. Walters.

“The original sculpture is located in Greenmount Cemetery in Baltimore. The memorial was selected by the Town of Union Bridge to be reproduced and installed in 2007 as a tribute to the sculptor.

“Rinehart was born into a farming family near Union Bridge and became known as one of America's most-skilled nineteenth-century sculptors. One of his best-known works is the relief known as The History of Justice on the bronze doors of the United States Senate Chamber in Washington.”

Historical Society of Carroll County recently wrote, “A recent Baltimore Sun article [http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archives-0621-20150619-story.html – “Remembering Carroll's statuesque and statue sculptor,” by Kevin E. Dayhoff – Eagle Archives] notes that ‘the work of Rinehart, meantime, can be seen in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Baltimore Museum of Art.’


An earlier form of Rinehart's sensitive bust of his mother was the first evidence of the young artist's talent. After his mother's death in 1868, he sent home for the work and for one of her caps. The artist prepared several plaster-casts of the new bust for presentation to his brothers and a marble one for himself. This example was probably given to his older brother Evan Thomas who gave it to his daughter, the donor.
