Immortal Love - Daniel Chester French

Tonight's sculptor is a chap called Daniel Chester French, a man whose work was of an equal with the Renaissance masters, but who appeared at a time when mastery in art was quickly going out of fashion. Nicholas Provenzo has more, and Lee Sandstead -- whose photograph this is -- has much more on French and other unsung masters.

  1. I love the way both there heads are turned up. It gives them a look of pride. I admire pride. It also looks like he's managed the difficult technique of flesh in stone. That takes a lot of skill and mastery to mange. There is a man who aimed for the sky and who reached it. There is a man who took pride in his work. That is a man I can admire and I don't admire many people given that I have high standards.
