Augustus Saint-Gaudens – Diana

Augustus Saint-Gaudens - Diana

Conservators recently restored “Diana,” the best-known work of the most celebrated sculptor of the Gilded Age, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. After an extensive study of the artist’s methods and several phases of technical preparation, they made much-needed structural repairs to the sculpture and applied 180 square feet of gold leaf to restore its original shine.

Conservators Andrew Lins, Alisa Vignalo, and Adam Jenkins apply gold leaf to “Diana” in the Great Stair Hall.
