It's mind bending to think about all the work he produced. Sculpture is no easy thing. The visit to his studio only made me want to know more about him and how he worked. I loved that he had railroad tracks made so that he could roll a sculpture out of his studio into natural light to study it further. As I looked around it popped to mind that he is America's Bernini.
As an artist I'm deeply interested in other artists studios and process. At Chesterwood I took a ton of pictures and here they are...enjoy!
|Nice surprise to see this as I walked the paths. Someone was clearly seized by the urge to create.|
|The study for the Lincoln Memorial, quite possibly the most beautiful, majestic sculpture ever.|
|The view from his studio!|
|Honestly, who could ever resist a walk under a flower covered arbor!|
