It is raining Diana!
This umbrella will make your rainiest day golden. Press the button on the handle to automatically open, and gaze upon a series of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Diana statues, wielding her bow and arrow, printed around the perimeter against a clear-sky-blue background.
The outside of the umbrella is adorned with the Philadelphia Museum of Art logo in gold. It closes with a click of the button so it can be stored in its slipcase, which is printed to match the inside of the umbrella. You will never have another gloomy rainy day again!
No trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art is complete without marveling at Saint-Gaudens’ Diana statue, which graces the top of Great Stair Hall.
Diana is arguably the best-known work of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who was recognized at the turn of the century as the country’s finest sculptor. When installed in 1893 on the tower of New York’s Madison Square Garden to serve as a weather vane, Diana ruled the highest point in Manhattan. The sculpture’s gilded form caught the sun during the day and was illuminated at night by the city’s first electric floodlights.
Madison Square Garden was demolished in 1925 and the Philadelphia Museum of Art adopted the sculpture in 1932. Diana has reigned as the goddess of the Museum’s Great Stair Hall ever since.
