Description : Kathryn Greenthal's Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master Sculptor is a critical study of one of the greatest artists this country has produced. The book recounts the sculptor's early days in New York as a cameo cutter's apprentice and his student years in France and Italy and identifies the sources of European influence from which he honed his native talent and earned his place in the international sculptural hierarchy. The author examines Saint-Gaudens's major achievements and reveals the associations, working methods, and fortunes of a man whose career flourished in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and the opening years of the twentieth. Saint-Gaudens established himself in New York in the 1880s, after periods of work and study in Paris and Rome. His return to America coincided with the great age of Beaux-Arts architecture, and the sculptor's inspired association with Henry Hobson Richardson, Charles McKim, and Stanford White led to the creation of the works for which he is best known. The copper figure of Diana that Saint-Gaudens made to embellish the original Madison Square Garden is the work most strongly identified with the sculptor today. Saint-Gaudens's monuments to American heroes, to Lincoln in Chicago, to Farragut and Sherman in New York, and to Robert Gould Shaw in Boston, demonstrate the Beaux-Arts concern with decoration, but also display a particularly American mythologizing quality. In a sense, these great men of history live in the public consciousness through the aspect of their characters Saint-Gaudens chose to portray. In another mode, Saint-Gaudens created large-scale works of great intimacy, most notably the Adams Memorial in Washington, D.C., whose solitary figure represents the emotion of grief. Throughout his career, while he was at work on monumental commissions, Saint-Gaudens also produced many relief portraits that show the delicacy of his draughtsmanship. Some of these are like sketches in bronze; others are fully developed portraits. In subject they range from a series of the sculptor's celebrated artist friends to distinguished personages and the children of wealthy patrons. Finally, late in his life, Saint-Gaudens was asked by Theodore Roosevelt to design coins. The figures of Liberty and the eagles that decorated these ten- and twenty-dollar gold pieces remain emblems of the federal identity, familiar and ideal. Copiously illustrated with photographs, those by Jerry L. Thompson taken especially for the book, Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master Sculptor presents in dazzling array accounts of works described by John K. Howat in the book's preface as "possessing such superb qualities of line, form, color, and surface that they capture equally our mind and our eye with the illusive impact of great beauty found only in the finest art objects."

Description : 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.

Description : 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 (1848–1907) 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 sculptor’s 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’s 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.

Description : Excerpt from Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Biography, Exhibition of His Works, and Memorial Meeting Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the great artist of the age, was a charming companion, a true friend, and a citizen leading to ideal life. His affable manner, quiet humor, quick appreciation, broad culture, and perfect Taste made his companionship sought and enjoyed. A sympathetic, candid nature and high aspirations made his friendship earnestly desired. His unselfish assistance to committees, institutions, and the government has been a guiding factor toward purity of Taste and nobility of life. His thorough equipment, sincerity of purpose, grasp of composition, knowledge of detail, understanding of mass, natural genius, brilliant imagination, and poetic nature, combined with infinite patience, untiring energy, and effacement of self, have produced the greatest sculpture of the age. His artistic light shines in refined low relief and bold monumental composition. The relief portraits of Robert Louis Stevenson and Justice Gray are exquisitely delicate, harmonious, restful, dignified, and beautiful. Portrait busts have attained a new dignity in his hands. The busts of John Hay and David J. Hill, while full of repose and individual expression, possess high sculptural value. He has made single figures impressive, something rarely accomplished.

Description : The sculpture of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), called the "American Michelangelo," has often been compared to the magnificent works of the Renaissance. As an advocate of new ideas and a new approach to sculpture, Saint-Gaudens played a preeminent role in developing America's cultural life and revitalizing the art of sculpture in the modern age. The son of immigrants, Saint-Gaudens studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in France and spent eight years in Europe, where he found a freer and bolder form of artistic expression. On his return to the United States in 1875, he used his European training to create a new American style incorporating simplicity of subject, realism of form, and strength of emotion. In addition to his monuments, his works also included interior decoration for some of the great houses of the Gilded Age, portrait reliefs, and medals and U.S. coinage.

Description : "Augustus Saint-Gaudens is considered one of America's greatest sculptors, but no major exhibition of his works had been held since the memorial retrospective in 1908. In one sense, however, Saint Gaudens is always on exhibition. For example, we see his Admiral Farragut in Madison Square, New York, his standing Lincoln in Lincoln Park, Chicago, his Adams Memorial in Rock Creek Cemetery, Washington, D.C., and his Shaw Memorial opposite the State House in Boston. Now The National Portrait Gallery has assembled for exhibition nearly two-thirds of the ninety portrait reliefs which he executed during his career, and this volume has grown out of the collection. New photographs have been taken of each portrait exhibited and these are accompanied by six portraits of Saint-Gaudens. The extensive catalogue not only details the information on each piece but also describes the artist's subjects -- among others Robert Louis Stevenson, William Dean Howells, John Singer Sargent, Henry Adams, Theodore Roosevelt, Mrs. Grover Cleveland. Further, this book presents the most complete bibliography yet assembled on Saint-Gaudens."--Book jacket.
