Photographer's Note

Grounds for Sculpture is a 35 acre sculpture garden located in central New Jersey. It was built on the old New Jersey State Fairgrounds in Hamilton. Whilst wandering the grounds one can admire contemporary sculpture or suddenly find oneself in a scene from a Manet or Monet painting.

In this case, the viewer is actually privileged enough to stand behind Monsiuer Claude Monet as he works on his famous "Terrace at Sainte-Adresse."

The sculpture gardens have a number of these living sculptures scattered about the premesis. Put it this way, when you visit Grounds for Sculpture, you never know which French Impressionist painting you're going to walk into. The sculptor responsible for these is a gentleman by the name of Seward Johnson.

Seward Johnson is not the only sculptor whose works are on display at Grounds for Sculpture. A number of talented contemporary artists have their works on display at these sculpture gardens.
