Art is unlike the other figures in being represented as nearly nude. She is crowned with laurel and holds a model of the Greek Parthenon. Beside her is a low tree, in the branches of which are hung a sculptor’s mallet and painter’s palette and brush.
• Art, sculptor:
François M. L. Tonetti-Dozzi (1863–1920), after sketches by Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907)
• Above the figure of Art:
As one lamp lights another, nor grows less,
So nobleness enkindleth nobleness.
—James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
