Identifing Steven A. Rebeck Works
Many of Steven A. Rebeck's sculptures are identified by his initials or name. Some, however, lack any inscription depending on the decision of the client or perhaps foundry. Rebeck's work is primarily in bronze, although some are painted plaster, granite and two known to be in aluminum.
Plaques usually have the identification of "S.A. Rebeck" on the lapel or lower shoulder of the bust. Sometimes it is followed by "SC" for sculptor. There is typically a connecting line underneath from the "k" to the "R."
