Malvina Hoffman’s “Races of the World” Sculpture

Malvina Hoffman, one of America’s greatest woman sculptors, chose a number of Chinese, both Han and other Chinese ethnic groups, as subjects for her famed “Races of the World” series sculpted for the 1933 World’s Fair.  Several are shown here, from photographs taken in the Field Museum by Ben Bronson and appear by courtesy of him.  The Field Museum retains all rights to these and other images of Hoffman’s “Races” series.  They may not be reproduced without permission.
