Augustus Saint-Gaudens in The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art owns some forty-five sculptures by Augustus Saint-Gaudens (18487ndash;1907), the American Beaux-Arts sculptor who worked in New York, Paris, and Cornish, New Hampshire. The Museum's collection fully represents the range of his oeuvre—from early cameos to innovative painterly bas-reliefs to reductions after public monuments for East Coast cities. Through the lens of the Museum's unparalleled holdings as well as some related loans, this exhibition offers a reappraisal of Saint-Gaudens's groundbreaking role in the history of late nineteenth-century American sculpture and the Aesthetic Movement.
