note:
Anna Huntington is a celebrated American sculptor, especially well known as a master animalier. She completed many public monuments and was the recipient of numerous awards and much international recognition, including the life-sized equestrian statue of Joan of Arc which earned her the merit of Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1933, and the widely appealing and popularly replicated Diana of the Chase, which won the National Academy of Design''s Saltus Medal for Merit in 1922.
The daughter of a professor of zoology and paleontology at both Harvard and MIT, Huntington was heavily influenced by her father''s work. Her extensive knowledge of animal anatomy and behavior is evident in her sculpting. Generous philanthropists, the artist and her husband Archer Milton Huntington supported various art museums and wildlife initiatives across the country, as well as created the country''s first sculpture garden, Brookgreen Gardens, in South Carolina.
