Fred X Brownstein's bust of Albert Rubin M.D.

We wanted to share with you a sculpture that went through Campbell Plaster & Iron before the holidays. Our dear friend Fred X Brownstein was commisioned by the Rogosin Institute in New York to sculpt a bust of it's founder Albert L. Rubin M.D.
Dr. Rubin who died in 2008, was the first nephrologist in New York to provide kidney dialysis and renal transplantation. He then created The Rogosin Institute and built it into one of New York City's leading research centers, specializing in kidney disease but also reasearch into cancer, diabetes, and other pressing health concerns. 
The bust is 18""x 14" and 9" deep
