HENRY VAN WOLF SCULPTURES GRACE MANY SAN FERNANDO VALLEY VENUES

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY

In the 1950s this gateway to the studio of the San Fernando Valley sculptor, Henry Van Wolf, graced the corner of Chandler Boulevard and Hazeltine Street in Van Nuys. The gate was a major landmark for those looking north on Chandler.  Henry Wolf and his wife Veronica moved to Van Nuys from New York in 1944. Four years later, he founded the Valley Artists Guild.

 Entrance way to the home and studio of Henry and Veronica Van Wolf in Van Nuys, California. This photo is a gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Joseph Van Wolf 2011.  Refer to photo 4092 - click on image to enlarge.

Bronze sculptures of an American antelope and mountain goat, that once graced the entrance of the Van Wolf home and studio on Chandler Boulevard. They were moved to the artist's studio when the Chandler property was sold. Photographs by Gerald Fecht for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley 2011.
