The Work of Augustus Saint-Gaudens
Winner of the American Association of Museums Award of Distinction (1983)
This is the most complete compendium ever attempted of the life and work of Augustus St-Gaudens. John Dryfhout has assembled over 500 illustrations depicting the cameos, sculptures, bas-reliefs, bronzes, coins, and medals forming the Saint-Gaudens oeuvre, as well as scenes of the artist's life and studio in Cornish, New Hampshire. Included is information on all known versions and editions of the artist's work in both public and private collections. The book will be an essential reference work for academic and public libraries, art libraries and museums, art historians, numismatists, and serious American art collectors.
