Humoresque Statue

The Humoresque Sculpture Fountain was created in 1924 as a bronze water pixie by Harriet Whitney Frishmuth, who studied under Auguste Rodin (18401917). Originally part of the Fisher estate on Grosse Ile, Humoresque was purchased by Dr. Allen Ziegler, the founder of Botsford Hospital, and donated to the City of Farmington Hills as a memorial for his son. The City gave it to the Library when the Farmington Hills Branch (now the Main Library) was opened in 1972. Humoresque originally stood in front of the Library on the north lawn bordering West Twelve Mile Road, but was relocated to the new Main Library Entrance after the expansion was completed in late 2002
