Anna Hyatt Huntington
Did you know that this was the studio of renowned sculptor, Anna Hyatt Huntington, who created the World War I Memorial in Legion Square featuring the impressive sculpture of Joan of Arc on horseback? The horse was modeled after a magnificent Percheron that was part of the team at the East Gloucester fire station. Huntington’s niece posed astride a barrel, as she modeled the figure of Joan, first nude, then in costume. Anna Hyatt Huntington (1876-1973) became one of the best-known and most prolific sculptors of the 20th century. The studio is the first house on the left after you cross the causeway on Washington Street heading toward Annisquam Village.
