PHILADELPHIA / ART
The Augustus Saint-Gaudens sculpture Diana has adorned the top of Philadelphia Museum of Art's Great Stair Hall for more than eighty years. Not far from Sofitel Philadelphia, Designed by Stanford White, it was created in 1892–93 as a gilded weather vane for the tower of New York’s Madison Square Garden. Conservators recently restored “Diana,” including the application of 180 square feet of gold leaf to restore its original shine. How magnifique!
