Willard Dryden Paddock

Willard Dryden Paddock (October 23, 1873 – November 25, 1956), was an American painter and sculptor. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he studied at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn below the guidance of sculptor Herbert Adams, before traveling to Paris to examination at the Académie Colarossi below the painters Gustave-Claude-Etienne Courtois and Louis Auguste Girardot. Paddock is perhaps enlarged known for his sculptural work, which garnered national attention, and included memorial structures, fountains, busts, figures, and sundials.
