Summary:
Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907). Trained in Paris and Rome, Saint-Gaudens is considered America's premiere sculptor of the 19th and early 20th Centuries.  During a career that spanned three decades, Saint-Gaudens created nearly one hundred and fifty works of art, including a number of major public monuments to heroes of the Civil War. While many passersby stop to admire his sculpture, few know of the life and times that created these incredible works of art. The documentary traces Saint-Gaudens' life, both personally and professionally, from his birth in Dublin, Ireland to his work in New York City and Paris to his death in Cornish, New Hampshire. The film discusses how Saint-Gaudens' projects ranged in scope from large public monuments and portraits in relief to cameos and gold coins. The story of his personal life is woven around in-depth studies of six of his major works of art, including the contemplative Standing Lincoln in Lincoln Park, Chicago, to the intensely moving Shaw Memorial on Boston Common, the powerful Sherman Monument in Central Park, the serenely beautiful Diana now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the stirring Adams Memorial in Washington DC.
