Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Conical Clock
Artist: Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse and Eugene Farcot
Creation Date: 1967
Origin: France
Medium: Silver, brass, marble

It’s time to start fresh and prepare for a new year! In recognition of the times gone by and the times to come, this month’s curators pick is the famous Eugene Farcot Conical Clock with sculpture by Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse. Drexel’s clock arrived at the university in 1912. It was a donation from Mrs. George W. Childs in memory of her husband, George W. Childs, a close friend and business partner of A. J. Drexel. Childs purchased the clock at the Parisian Exposition in 1867 for $6,000, making it one of the most expensive clocks in the entire world. One of only three conical clocks in the United States; it is one of Drexel’s most notable pieces of art. Conical clocks have a pendulum that operates in a circular motion as opposed to side to side, and they are surprisingly accurate.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
