KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas artist whose bronze sculptures are on display in the nation's capital and at historical monuments around the country has died. He was 72.
Jim Brothers died Tuesday at his home in Lawrence. A
at Warren McElwain Mortuary in Lawrence says Brothers had been receiving hospice care.
Gallery owner Paul Dorrell says Brothers is best known for two projects; he created a sculpture of Dwight Eisenhower that's on display at the Capitol in Washington and was the chief sculptor for the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Va.
Dorrell says he was immediately drawn to the "raw power" of the artist's work.
Friend Alan Webster says Brothers never stopped creating and was directing his assistants on how to finish his last sculpture from his sick bed.
