Mahonri Young, one of America's best known contemporary artists, is a man of prolific talents. Since beginning his creative artistic output at the turn of the century he has produced a staggering total of sculptures, paintings, carvings and etchings. This grandson of Brigham Young, born in Salt Lake City in 1877, the year that his illustrious grandfather died, has been a stalwart and sturdy recorder of the American scene, uninfluenced by "fads." Among his most famous works are his bronzes of prize-fighters, two of which are shown here. Boxing is one of Young's enthusiasms and the powerful yet sensitive handling of these sculptures shows it.
