Death Mask of Horace Wells

This bronze mask of Horace Wells can be seen in the Warren Anatomical Museum in Boston. It was made, probably in 1875, from a plaster original taken at Dr. Wells death. It was used by sculptor Truman Howe Bartlett as the basis for his statue of Horace Wells which stands in Hartford today and later donated to the Boston Medical Library1.
