Pierce Rice surveys the role of the human figure in public art.

As he takes his argument through several categories, including the cherub, the celebration of victory, and the Virgin as Mother, there are some unexpected artists in the pantheon: not only Michelangelo, Veronese, Fragonard, and Winslow Homer but also J. C. Leyendecker, creator of covers for the Saturday Evening Post, and John Tenniel, illustrator of Alice in Wonderland. Illustrated
