Description

This scholarly volume interprets American taste and aesthetics in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Described here are 171 sculptures from the MFA's collection, in marble, bronze, plaster, and other materials. Biographies of the sculptors - including such legendary figures as Horatio Greenough, Hiram Powers, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens - detail the artists' origins and careers, while an appendix provides a groundbreaking technical analysis of the bronzes.
