Product Overview

Arguably the greatest American sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens (1848-1907) left a rich legacy of artwork including public monuments such as the Adams Memorial in Washington, D.C., the Sherman Monument in Manhattan and perhaps his greatest work, the Shaw Memorial in Boston, honoring Col. Robert Gould Shaw and the famed Massachusetts 54th Regiment of African American volunteers. Saint Gaudens also created wonderful portrait reliefs and medals and is especially known for his design of the 1907 twenty-dollar gold piece, considered America''s most beautiful coin.This eminently readable biography, nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1986, provides a full and accurate portrait of the man and his times. Solid, well-researched and absorbing, The Life and Works of Augustus Saint Gaudens offers a lively depiction of this talented man who rose from humble origins to success as one of the most important of American artists.
