Manship, Paul Howard, 1885–1966, American sculptor, b. St. Paul, Minn., studied at St. Paul Institute of Arts, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the American Academy at Rome. He often went to classical mythology for his subjects. His art is notable for its emphatic musculature and polished contours. Among his works are Prometheus (Rockefeller Center, New York City); Centaur and Dryad, Little Brother, and Pauline (Metropolitan Mus.); and Indian and Pronghorn Antelope and Dancer and Gazelles (Art Inst., Chicago). He received many awards and was a member of the Legion of Honor.
