Description This elegant bronze statue by British Sculptor George Blackall Simonds (1843-1929) depicts a young falconer in Elizabethan garb holding aloft a falcon poised for release.The Falconer is representative of the rich sculptural collection Central Park inherited in the 19th century. The original Falconer was created for Trieste, Italy, and shown in 1875 at the Royal Academy in London, England. It appears that George Kemp (1826-1893), a wealthy, Irish-born, New York merchant admired the sculpture so much that he commissioned a full-scale replica for Central Park. It was dedicated on May 31, 1875 on a cylindrical granite pedestal, perched on a natural rock outcropping, south of the 72nd Street transverse road, and east of the park's West Drive.
