At the age of seven, Paul Manship began his studies at the Institute of Art in St. Paul. Pursuing a career in the arts, he traveled to the East in 1905. Immediately following his arrival in New York City, Manship enrolled at the Art Students League but soon after transferred to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Manship assisted for the sculptor Solon Borglum. In 1909, at the age of 24, he received the Prix de Rome, which allowed him to study at the American Academy in Rome as well as provided him with a studio and travel allowance. In Rome, Manship's sculpting style quickly evolved as he studied Roman, Greek, and Egyptian sculpture. He was strongly influenced by the high stylization and patterning of figures. In 1912, he returned to New York and quickly became very successful.
