From the outset, Brookgreen has been committed to the collection of American figurative sculpture, particularly those pieces that could be displayed outdoors in garden settings. Its founders built this collection around Anna Hyatt Huntington‘s own work and that of her contemporaries. Eventually, the collection was extended back to the early nineteenth century and forward into the twenty-first century. Today this collection contains over 1,200 works by 350 artists.
These are some of my favorites.
