The centenary of Augustus Saint-Gaudens's passing was commemorated with activities ranging from film screenings to scholarly panels, and culminated in the Met's exhibition, Augustus Saint-Gaudens in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, on view from June 30 through November 15, 2009. Henry Duffy, curator at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, talks about Augustus Saint-Gaudens's home and studio in Cornish, New Hampshire. Saint-Gaudens's presence attracted a number of artists to the area, including Maxfield Parrish, Frederick MacMonnies, and Frances Grimes.
