John Hogan (1800-1858)
John Hogan was the neo-classicist of Irish Sculpture. Along with his contemporaries John Henry Foley, John Lawlor and Samuel Ferris Lynn, he was a key figure in the history of Irish art in the 1800's. Hogan's best known works include his three versions of The Dead Christ (also known as the Redeemer in Death). Made from flawless Carrara marble, the first version is located in St. Therese's Church, Dublin (1829), the second in St. Finbarr's Church, Cork (1833), and the third is located in the Basilica of St. John The Baptist, Newfoundland (1854).
