Artist's Description

Commissioned from the celebrated American sculptor August Saint-Gaudens in the early 1880s and dedicated as a monument in 1897, the Shaw Memorial has been acclaimed as the greatest American sculpture of the nineteenth century. The wall sculpture masterly depicts Colonel Robert Shaw and the first African-American infantry unit from the North to fight for the Union during the Civil War. The memorial is on a ten-year loan to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, where it was photographed.
