A Timeless Perfection: American Figurative Sculpture in the Classical Spirit – Gifts from Dr. Michael L. Nieland @ Westmoreland Museum of American Art
Oct 7 – Dec 31 all-day
A Timeless Perfection: American Figurative Sculpture in the Classical Spirit - Gifts from Dr. Michael L. Nieland @ Westmoreland Museum of American Art | Greensburg | Pennsylvania | United States

An extraordinary new generation of academically trained American sculptors emerged during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. At the height of the Gilded Age, they achieved widespread critical and commercial success for works created on public commission as well as for private patrons. Working on both grand civic platforms and on a more intimate, domestic scale, they transformed the art of American sculpture.
