Monuments and Myths: The Americas of Sculptors Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Daniel Chester French

Explores the intersecting careers of the Gilded Age’s most prominent sculptors to shine new light on some of America’s most iconic public monuments.
 
Monuments and Myths is the first publication to trace the intersecting work of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907) and Daniel Chester French (1850–1931), the leading American sculptors of the Gilded Age. Featuring provocative essays, stunning photographs, and an in-depth illustrated chronology, the catalog brings a contemporary perspective to sculptures that have defined and defied notions of American identity. This critical look at the artists’ public and private works considers evolving ideas about race and representation, Indigeneity, civic space, memory, and American history. Hardcover, 224 pages.
