Biography   James MacDonald


Primarily a sculptor but also a painter of landscapes and portraits, James Wilson MacDonald was described as "a colorful figure in New York art circles. . .who wrote art criticism and lectured on anatomy and ancient monuments.  When he died in 1908 in Yonkers, New York, just before his eight-fourth birthday, his obituary in the New York Times called him 'America's oldest sculptor."

He was credited as the carver* of the "first marble portrait cut west of the Mississippi" (103).  The subject was Senator Thomas Hart Benton, and it was displayed at the Saint Louis Mercantile Library Association.  Also in bronze, he did many public portraits of prominent Americans such as General George Custer for West Point   ...  Displaying 750 of 8535 characters.
