Like many sculptors in the nineteenth century, this artist traveled to Italy and made copies of well-known Italian sculpture. This practice was an important learning experience and it also provided the sculptor with a highly marketable work of art, as American tourists would frequently purchase these copies on their trips abroad. Working in the Neoclassical style, this artist is best known for creating original sculpture with political and moral messages.

Guess the artist in the poll below and come back tomorrow for the reveal, as well as more information about this remarkable artist.
