This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor working primarily in bronze but also in plaster, terracotta, and wood, Milton Hebald does figural pieces that have strong diagonal lines and Baroque theatricality.  He is interested in the roots of sculpture from the eastern Mediterranean tradition through the Renaissance and Baroque periods, especially Bernini of Rome.

His most famous work is the Zodiac group, a 220-foot-long bronze in the Pan American Terminal at John F. Kennedy Airport.  At one time it was the world's largest sculpture.  Another of his subjects was the novelist James Joyce of whom he did a life-size portrait, which marks the author's grave in Zurich, Switzerland. He also sculpted characters from the Greek tale of "Ulysses" and created the bust of Richard Tucker at Lincoln Center.

Hebald was born and raised in New York City, and studied there at the Art Students League, the National Academy of Design, and the Beaux-Arts Institute. During the Depression, he worked for the WPA, and his first one-person show was in 1937 at the American Artists Congress Gallery.  He also exhibited regularly at the Whitney Museum. In 1956, 1957 and 1957, he won the Prix-de-Rome from the National Academy in New York and moved to Rome to work there at the National Academy.  later he moved to Lago di Bracciano until 2004, when he returned to the United States.
