About

Agnes Yarnall LePage, began studying sculpture at the age of 6 at the Liberty Tadd School of Modeling. She went on to study with Charles Grafly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before opening her own studio in the late 1920s, with the support of her parents, Anna B. Coxe and Charlton Yarnall. Over the years, Ms. Yarnall's work included numerous portraits, human figures and animal sculptures. Among her proudest achievements were busts of George Washington and General Lafayette, displayed at the Valley Forge Historical Society, and of Abraham Lincoln, at the Union League of Philadelphia. She also counted among her premier accomplishments busts she sculpted of Ronald Reagan, Jack Nicklaus and Pope John Paul II. One reviewer who had seen her depictions of Edna St. Vincent Millay, Dame Judith Anderson, Carl Sandburg and Sir John Gielgud lauded her work for its ''sensitivity, grace and dynamism," her family said. During her early career Ms. Yarnall studied and worked with such great artists as Boris Blai, Paul Manship and Alexander Archipenko. In addition to her long career in sculpture, she also was an accomplished poet. Her books included Indian Summer, Hesperides and Other Poems and Pandora and Other Poems. In 1987 Ms. Yarnall was presented with the Living Legacy Award as ''Evocatrix Extraordinary" by the Women's International Center, joining such honorees as Dame Judith Anderson, Clare Boothe Luce, Kate Smith and Jane Goodall. Sculptor, painter, poet and artistic historian, Agnes Yarnall has, since the age of six been breathing life into her art. Miss Yarnall's elaborate and varied sculpted works include her groupings of "Clowns", "Animals" and "The Civil War" - all which have received international acclaim from the most discriminating critics. As a fashioner of verse, writing epic and lyric odes, sonnets and ballads, Agnes Yarnall is recognized as a fine and versatile poet. She is author of "Pandora and Other Poems", "Hesperidies and Other Poems", "An Attemped Evocation of the Civil War", "Circus World", "Poems of Sentiment and Recollections" and "Indian Summer." She was commissioned to do a life size statue of Benjamin Franklin for the Franklin Institute Laboratories. Her husband, Dr. Laurence LePage was the President of the Franklin Institute.
