This video was produced to illustrate the life and accomplishments of Daniel Chester French, through it we hope to provide a primer on this remarkable individual which will provide better context of why he built and resided at Chesterwood, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, for half of the year.
Leonda Froehlich Finke lives and works in Roslyn, NY. Largely self-taught, she has been creating sculpture for more than 50 years. This conversation, conducted by Donna Hassler, Director of Chesterwood, was held on the piazza of the studio at Chesterwood during the summer of 2011.
Judith was our 2010 sculptor-in-residence and worked in the Woodshed during the month of September. A special thanks to the High Meadow Foundation for sponsoring Judith’s residency!
