These two life-like sculptures are done by artist J. Seward Johnson Jr. The artist dresses his statues of everyday people in real clothes before encasing them in bronze. Seward Johnson is the grandson of the Johnson & Johnson co-founder and often donates sculptures to the town, where his is a part-time resident, and his pieces can be found in several places around Key West as well as inside the museum.
The second statue below is based on a Renoir painting, called “Dance in the Country".
Unfortunately, the artist Seward Johnson recently died in March 2020 at 90 years old.
