Civil War Monuments of Augustus Saint-Gaudens - Gonson Daytime Lecture & Discussion

Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907) secured his place in the pantheon of American artists with his dynamic portrayals of Civil War heroes. This survey of the life and work of the influential sculptor focuses on his heroic yet compassionate "Abe Lincoln: The Man" as representative of Saint-Gaudens’s method, art, and time. By discussing other works, including the General Sherman monument and "The Shaw Memorial/54th Massachusetts Regiment" on the Boston Common, students will gain an appreciation of Saint-Gaudens’s pioneering integration of architecture, landscape design, and monumental sculpture. Instrutor: Jack Curtis.
