Hyatt, Anna Vaughn

▪ American sculptor
married name  Anna Hyatt Huntington 
born March 10, 1876, Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.
died October 4, 1973, Redding, Connecticut

      American sculptor who brought great subtlety and vividness to equestrian and animal subjects.

      Anna Hyatt was the daughter of noted Harvard paleontologist Alpheus Hyatt (Hyatt, Alpheus). She was educated privately and began her study of sculpture with Henry H. Kitson in Boston. She later attended the Art Students League in New York City. In 1900 Hyatt had her first one-woman exhibition, held in Boston, where she showed some 40 characteristic pieces—animal figures, delicately and accurately modeled and endowed with a lifelike spirit. In 1903 the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York made its first of many acquisitions of her sculpture. In 1907 she traveled to France, and for a year she occupied a studio in Auvers-sur-Oise. She showed at the Paris Salon and in 1910 won honourable mention there for her equestrian statue of Joan of Arc, replicas of which were erected in New York in 1915 and subsequently in several other cities, both in the United States and Europe.

      Hyatt's other works of note include Diana and the Chase (1922); El Cid Campeador, an equestrian figure erected in Sevilla, Spain, in 1927; Don Quixote (1942); Fighting Stallions, a 17-foot (5-metre) statue cast in aluminum and erected at Southwest Texas State Teachers College in 1951; figures of José Martí, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson; and a number of pieces for the grounds of the Hispanic Society of America in New York. She was granted membership into the French Legion of Honour in 1922 and received a gold medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1930. Her works are in the collections of more than 200 museums and galleries throughout the world. From March 1923 she was married to poet, financier, and philanthropist Archer M. Huntington.
