Print Description:
At the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair, a concessionaire who was selling ice cream ran out of cups. The concessionaire next to him was selling crisp, wafer-like pastry baked on a flat waffle iron. It was his idea to roll one of his wafers into a cornucopia, let it cool, and put a scoop of ice cream into it.

The idea was an immediate hit and the "World's Fair Cornucopia," or ice cream cone, was born. Both the concessionaires were immigrants, and in my painting, The Immigrant Spirit, I wanted to show that spirit of enterprise and innovation.

The same spirit brought the immigrants through Ellis Island and carried them through the new land. Thy were truly "pillars of a nation."
