Daniel Chester French (1850 1931)
Known as the "Dean of American Sculptors" during his day, Daniel
Chester French played an active role in the art world of his day; he served
on many juries, university panels, as the second chairman of the Commission
of Fine Arts in Washington, D.C., and on the Board of Trustees of the
Metropolitan Museum of Art. He is most famous for his Seated Lincoln for
the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. and, here in New England, for
his Minuteman Statue in Concord, MA.
Forest Hills is fortunate to be home to five outdoor memorials by Daniel
Chester French. In addition the Cemetery owns two pieces which are exhibited
at indoor locations.
