Augustus Saint-Gaudens in the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Be the first to review this product

This book recounts the engaging story of a French Irish immigrant who became the greatest American sculptor of his day. During his lifetime, Saint Gaudens 1848 to 1907 both contributed to exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum and served as an advisor to its staff. After his death, the Museum continued steadily to acquire his sculptures. Today it owns 45 of the sculptors works, ranging from delicate cameos and medals to innovative painterly bas reliefs to stirring statuettes and portrait busts after Civil War monuments for East Coast cities. Thayer Tolles appraises Saint Gaudens groundbreaking position in the history of late 19th century American sculpture and the Aesthetic Movement, and she also addresses his role in advancing American art on the international stage.
