Artist Description

“Sculptor Henry Hering was born in New York City on February 15, 1874. He was well-trained and schooled attending the Art Students League from 1894 to 1898 and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris for several years. In 1900 Henry Hering went to Cornish, New Hampshire to be an assistant to his mentor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Mr. Hering remained with Saint-Gaudens at the Cornish Colony until Saint-Gaudens death in 1907.

Henry Hering is most known for his work with Saint-Gaudens, most notably “The Pilgrim” in Philadelphias Fairmount Park and the “Sherman Monument.” He rarely exhibited and preferred to work alone. Henry Hering died January 15, 1949.”
