  • ugustus Saint Gaudens (Irish-born American sculptor, 1848–1907) - Amor Caritas 1899
    The elaborately draped, angelic female figure is a smaller version of the bronze statue, now in the Musee de Louvre in Paris, for which Auguste Saint-Gaudens won the grand prize at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. Amor Caritas [Angel of Charity] is formally related to classical sculptural prototypes such as caryatids - statues of women used as columns in Greek temples. Siant Gaudens often depicted angels, as did many other late 19th century artists, to symbolize the perceived virtues of women. Small version of full-size like this one were popular and marketed by Tiffany and Company of New York City.

    8. 8. From the founding of the Art Institute of Chicago, in 1879, architectural fragments have played an important educational role in the museum. The first artifacts acquired by the Art Institute were dramatic full-scale plaster casts of the great monument of Europe, such as the Parthenon frieze at the top of the east walls of the gallery. More recently, the Art Institute has received additional fragments and landmark buildings have been restored in the 1980s and 1990s.

    33. 33. Greek mythology often provided the content for American nineteenth- century sculpture: the connection to the respected academic tradition of the ancient Greeks rendered the depiction of the nude more acceptable to a conservative audience
    34. 34. Her windswept hair and drapery, and her pose, convey a distinct sense of forward motion, a difficult effect to achieve in marble. Randolph Rogers (1825-1892) The Lost Pleiade
