Robert Gould Shaw Memorial
We had the distinct pleasure of touring Augustus Saint-Gaudens home, gardens, and studio yesterday. Please click on the links to read historical information. One of the most impressive funerary sculptures we saw was the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial, the original stands in the Boston Commons.
This national historic site, which includes the home, studio, gardens, and grounds, is maintained by the National Park Service.

The Gaudens site is one of two national parks dedicated to visual artists in our country and it's well worth a visit. The other site is the Weir Farm of Julian Allen Weir in Connecticut. I took many more photos but didn't want to make this post too cumbersome. There is so much to see at the site and if I have time I'll go back as I missed the atrium and another sculpture section. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
