Opening Soon: An Exhibition Featuring the Work of Two Renowned American Sculptors

Daniel Chester French (1850–1931) and Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907) were the preeminent American sculptors of the Gilded Age. As friendly rivals, they transformed sculpture in the United States, producing dozens of the nation’s most recognizable public artworks, including Diana atop New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Seated Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC. Learn about the lives and work of both artists in Monuments and Myths, opening Friday, March 1.
