He was his own severest critic and had that infinite patience which goes back over a thing, and over it, again and again until it is satisfactory to himself. St. Gaudens often worked for days over a statue that had received the approval of the purchaser, because it did not seem just right to him. And when it did seem right to him, it was sure to be right, because he had a fineness of judgment that is given to few artists. Like all truly great men, St. Gaudens was never obtrusively present in a throng. He was, in fact, rather diflident. But he had his own opinions on all subiects and when called upon could express them forc- ibly. His temper when aroused was terrific and because of his nervous- ness and excitability it was roused not infrequently. However, he had a fine sense of humor, which he may have inher- ited from his Irish mother, and such humor is the saving grace of Amer- icans. St. Gaudens had that unusual greatness which is able to completely submerge itself to do honor to his hero. It was his remarkable-power to feel his subject, however, and his ability to translate that feeling to us that makes us stand in awe before his works. They seem to be rather the expression of an overpowering sentiment than an effort to produce a work of art. They suggest the big thought behind the whole thing, rather than just one instance, as in his Civil War portrayals. One seems to feel the big issues at stake in the struggle, just by seeing his "Lin- coln" or his "Sherman". And this bigness is the bigness of St. Gaudens himself 3 of a mind great enough to encompass a universe, of a heart sublime enough to sympathize with it. He was as truly a great man as he was a great sculptor, since a gift such as his, without ceaseless toil and ready will- ingness to take advantage of opportunities, would never have attained immortality. Surely, in the gallery of great Americans the scu1ptor's place should be filled by Augustus St. Gaudens. -Mazrie Stevens.
