Description

While his "Franklin" is considered to mark the pinnacle of Richard Greenough's career, the sculptor is an artist who certainly deserves to be remembered for his work. Growing up in the shadow of his older brother, sculptor Horatio Greenough, Richard carved out his own niche of well-crafted busts and reliefs. Although his work is sometimes overlooked, Thomas Brumba argues it still deserves proper recognition.
