John Rogers (1829-1904). The Council of War. 1868. Painted terra cotta.

This is the first of three versions of John Rogers’s famous depiction of President Lincoln consulting with General Grant and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (1814-1869). Although he produced large, life-sized works of famous Americans, Rogers was best known for his creations of small figures and scenes depicting home life, known as “Rogers Groups,” which were enormously popular.
