Clinton Ogilvie (1838–1900), a New York landscape painter, studied under James M. Hart and was also influenced by John F. Kensett, whose studio he often visited. From the 1860s to the early 1880s, Ogilvie spent extended periods of time in Europe, completing scenes of Ireland, Italy, and Switzerland in his characteristic meticulous style. This posthumous portrait of Ogilvie is one of a series of busts of American artists that Bartlett executed between 1919 and 1925. A bronze version was completed in 1919 for the Hall of American Artists at New York University (now in the university’s Elmer Holmes Bobst Library). This marble varies in its asymmetrical undraped termination with a tablet.
