William Tecumseh Sherman & Victory
Continuing our walk down Fifth Avenue, we came to this outdoor sculpture of William Tecumseh Sherman by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It is located at Grand Army Plaza in Manhattan which is at 59th Street. Cast in 1902 and dedicated on May 30, 1903, the gilded-bronze monument consists of an equestrian statue and an allegorical female figure, Victory. Recently the statue was renewed in 2013, including a re-gilding with gold leaf. It is stunning, isn't it? Such beautiful detail.
