Biography

Charles Niehaus was an American sculptor born to German immigrants. He learned to engrave wood and carve stone at a young age, studying at the McMicken School of Design in Cincinnati. He then moved to München in 1877 for further studies at the Royal Academy. On his return to the US, US President Garfield ordered two portrait busts, which brought Niehaus many significant commissions. One of them was intended for the Capitol in Washington.

Niehaus was among the foremost monumental sculptors of his generation. He was active as both a portrait sculptor and monumental sculptor, winning numerous national competitions and many honors. He later turned to horse motifs and married writer Regina Armstrong.
