John Quincy Ward became best-known for his larger than life statue of George Washington, which was erected in front of Federal Hall on Wall Street. He first studied medicine and then sculpture in Washington and then became known for over-life sized sculptures of known public figures. From early childhood, Ward also displayed a fondness for modeling and making clay figures of animals. He also worked with bronze, plaster and marble.

His sculpture, Indian Hunter with his Dog, was submitted posthumously to the 1928 Art Competitions in Amsterdam. In this sculpture, Ward successfully imparted directness and naturalism by relying on the tactile and expressive qualities of bronze. His brother Edgar Melville Ward was also an artist.
