The first milestone in this story was laid down in 1792 when celebrated French artist Jean-Antoine Houdon sculpted General Washington, the founder of American democracy. Nearly a century later, The Statue of Liberty became one of the country's foremost symbols.

Retracing the histories of these works, which number over 15,000 at latest estimates, we embark upon a journey across the United States with a fresh perspective. We discover public monuments, with their sometimes-controversial symbolism, and the stories of the women and men who shaped the American artistic landscape. We meet the Founding Fathers, the manufacturers who drove the nation's economic growth, the foundrymen who handed their techniques down over the generations and the collectors behind the first museums, as well as artists such as Auguste Rodin (the most highly regarded of all French sculptors), Constantin Brancusi, and Marcel Duchamp.
