Gall - ChargerI and II

Ted Gall – Charger I and II

Painted Steel

These two colorful horses lend their humorous spirited presence to the Park.  Seeming at first to resemble paper cutouts, these sculptures also reveal a thorough understanding of horse anatomy  and have a very “realistic” sense of movement.

The artist, now a Californian, was at one time the sculptor-in-residence at Fel-Pro, Inc. During his 22-year stay there, Mr. Gall created hundreds of sculptures, four of which are at the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park, donated by the late Lewis Weinberg, former CEO of Fel-Pro and president of the Sculpture Park Board of Directors.

This sculpture is part of the Permanent Collection of the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
