Step into the rich tradition of American sculpture with an original piece by the renowned artist, Edward Francis McCartan (1879-1947). Recognized as one of America's greatest sculptors, McCartan's work reflects the vibrancy and the passion of his talent that emerged in his boyhood and flourished throughout his life, capturing the hearts of art lovers across the globe.

The journey of McCartan's artistic excellence began at an early age, as he instinctively took to sculpting at the tender age of five or six. By ten, his innate talent had begun to shine brightly, evidenced by a captivating lion figure he deftly crafted from clay. Eager to build on his talent and hone his craft, McCartan moved to Paris in 1907, gaining exposure to a new world of artistry and immersing himself in seminars and exhibitions both in Paris and Rome.

Returning to New York in 1910, the most active and prosperous chapter of McCartan's career unfolded. His sculptures, largely aristocratic garden pieces, graced gardens throughout America, each one a testament to his extraordinary skills. Simultaneously, he received several accolades, reinforcing his position as a monumental figure in American sculpture.

In 1923, McCartan created his most acclaimed piece, 'Diana with a Dog'. This masterful sculpture portrays a nude goddess Diana, with a bow in one hand and a straining greyhound in the other. This piece accentuates the tension of muscles and the aesthetic beauty of their body lines, serving as an enduring testament to McCartan's distinct style. The riveting piece has since garnered numerous awards and is viewed as McCartan's signature work.
