Additional Details:
This marble statue of the author of the "Missouri Compromise" was executed by Joel T. Hart, a native of Kentucky, and unveiled April 12, 1860. It is said to be an excellent likeness of Clay, though the uncouth habiliments which clothe the figure (perhaps a too faithful rendering of the style of the period) rather detract from a proper appreciation of the artistic value of the effigy.
