“Angel of the Resurrection” was the sculptor’s name for this bronze angel. Henry Kirke Brown was the sculptor, and he was one of the first Americans to cast his own full-size bronzes. When his statue of De Witt Clinton was unveiled in 1855, it was reported to be the first full-length statue cast in bronze by an American; this angel, however, is older, though a little less than life size (if angels have a life size). By some reckonings, then, this is the first large bronze statue cast in America. It was cast in about 1850, since George Hogg died in 1849.
The bronze angel is by the well-known sculptor Henry Kirke Brown; according to the cemetery site, it was one of the first bronze statues cast by an American foundry. Since George Hogg died at the end of 1849, the angel probably dates from about 1850.
