Despite the triumph of modernism, a handful of American sculptors, including Anna Hyatt Huntington, creator of The Torch Bearers (1955), continued to work in the neoclassical mode prior to and after WWII. Huntington was highly regarded for her large-scale public commissions at a time when the preferred product of most women sculptors was the small bronze statuette. In the words of one art journalist, she “made a name for herself depicting fierce creatures, strong leaders, and legendary heroines.”

The Lovecraftian Art of Harold Arthur McNeill

155 words

H. P. Lovecraft is not just an inspiration to writers but also to visual artists who wish to translate his uncanny and sometimes elusive descriptions into visible realities.

The Monumental Civic Sculpture of Donald De Lue

Donald De Lue, Rocket Thrower, 1964

2,236 words

For nearly 50 years between 1940 and 1988, Donald De Lue (1897–1988) may have executed more monumental public commissions than any other sculptor of his generation. An iconoclastic figurative artist in an era dominated by apostles of ugliness in art, art criticism, and academia, De Lue’s monumental sculpture adorns such sites as Valley Forge, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Omaha Beach at Normandy, and the 1964 New York World’s Fair.

Glittering Images: A Journey Through Art from Egypt to Star Wars
