Comments and Notes
NAMES, ALT: Flanders Field Memorial, Clinton War Memorial
DESIGN -- FOUNDER: NYC Parks & Rec shows the founder as Gorham Bronze, on its webpage, which this database is following; SIRIS on its webpage lists the founder as Roman Bronze Works.
DESIGN -- DEVELOPMENT: Dedication: The field guide date (6/8/1930) is from a New York Times notice dated 6/6/1930. The monument engraving states 5/30/1930. Reynolds (Monuments and Masterpieces) and the New York City Parks and Recreation give the dedication date 11/11/1929. Both SIRIS and Gayle and Cohen (Guide to Manhattan's Outdoor Sculpture) note the dedication as "1930."
SETTING: The above New York Times notice indicates the monument "will be placed on the highest point of the park between Fifty-second and Fifty-fourth Streets facing the Hudson River and overlooking Twelfth Avenue and the new express highway." The 1935 image in Gayle and Cohen has the monument relocated to its present location. Jonathan Kuhn, director, Art & Antiquities, NYC Parks/Rec, commented to the writer that "Art Commission records from April 29, 1932 (we have no primary source documents until 1934) document a request to relocate the sculpture to the eastern entrance of the park, due to the construction of the elevated West Side Highway."
SPONSOR: Membership Group/Public Contribution -- Clinton District Monument Association
