Picture of Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

Just one quote by Augustus Saint-Gaudens

Augustus Saint-Gaudens (March 1, 1848 – August 3, 1907) was born in Dublin to an Irish mother and French father, Bernard Paul Ernest Saint-Gaudens, a shoemaker by trade from a small village in the French Pyrenees, Aspet, 15 kilometers from Saint-Gaudens. After his parents immigrated to America when he was six months of age, he was reared in New York City. He achieved major critical success for his monuments commemorating heroes of the American Civil War, many of which still stand. Saint-Gaudens created works such as the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial on Boston Common, Abraham Lincoln: The Man, and grand equestrian monuments to Civil War generals: General John Logan Memorial in Chicago's Grant Park and William Tecumseh Sherman at the corner of New York's Central Park. In addition, he created the popular historicist representation of The Puritan. He designed the $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle gold piece (1905–1907) for the US Mint, considered one of the most beautiful American coins ever issued, as well as the $10 “Indian Head” gold eagle; both of these were minted from 1907 until 1933. In his later years he founded the “Cornish Colony”, an artistic colony that included notable painters, sculptors, writers, and architects.
