John Rogers : American stories( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Rogers (1829-1904) is arguably the most popular American sculptor ever, selling over 80,000 small plasters, known as 'Rogers Groups' over the course of a career that spanned the late nineteenth century. Rogers himself said, 'I want each group to tell a story', and these narrative sculptures carried on a deeply rooted popular American genre tradition that was established in the antebellum period by painters such as William Sidney Mount and George Caleb Bingham. The book, illustrated and containing eleven essays on different aspects of his work (including its Neoclassical elements influences and the mass market it found), aims to bring Rogers' work to life for a new generation of admirers
