Edward McCartan
Date: 1879 - 1947
Remarks: Prominent sculptor and teacher in NY in the early 20th century. The origins of his low relief profile type of portrait can be traced back to Italian quattrocento relief sculpture that was revived and reinterpreted by such men as Saint-Gaudens and Herbert Adams. By 1917, when Mccartan executed this portrait it was already an academic style (1953.199)
