Our cast plaster sculpture by American artist John Rogers is titled "The Wounded Scout: Friend in the Swamp", and depicts a black man aiding a Union soldier. Rogers was known for small cast plaster genre scenes, instead of bronze and marble. His sculptures were painted in neutral colors, and could be mass produced less expensively, to be found in American parlors. Here the white soldier is wounded from a snake bite, and is being helped by the black man. The snake appears at the base. This piece includes very fine details in rendering of form such as the men's facial expressions, veins in arms and feet, and leather boots on the white soldier, and beard hair and tattered clothes on the black man. John Rogers, American, 1829-1904, painted plaster.
