'The Young Diana,' by Anna Hyatt Huntington


The Young Diana, by Anna Hyatt Huntington, set in the Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina.

The Gardens were set up in 1930 by New York industrialist Archer Huntington and his sculptor wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, as a natural outdoor setting for Mrs. Huntington's sculpture and for the preservation of southeastern flaura and fauna. It was the first 'public' sculpture garden in the US.
