Barnard, George Grey

Barnard, George Grey

▪ American sculptor
born May 24, 1863, Bellefonte, Pa., U.S.
died April 24, 1938, New York City
 sculptor whose works were characterized by a vitality and individuality that brought him early fame.

      After studying in Chicago and Paris, he exhibited at the 1894 Paris Salon, where his work (including the “Struggle of the Two Natures in Man,” 1894; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City) created a sensation. Probably his best known work is a vigorous statue of Lincoln (Lytle Park, Cincinnati, Ohio), which was the centre of a storm of criticism when it was unveiled in 1917. Barnard made a collection of early Gothic sculpture and medieval architectural fragments that in 1925 was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
