Research Facts
John Rogers (1829-1904) was a very well-known sculptor who created groups from 1859 to 1892 on the subjects of everyday life, the theatre, Shakespeare, the Civil War, and horses; at a time when it was in vogue to have parlour statuary in one's home, Rogers provided appealing high-quality durable plaster statuary that was well within the reach of many for whom marble or bronze statuary was not. The sculpture belonged to the donor's mother-in-law and was part of the household furnishings in Winnipeg.
