    Comments: Romantic sculptor of ancient subjects and portraits. The son of Associate Justice Joseph Story of the U.S. Supreme Court, William Wetmore Story practiced law in Boston for about five years before his father's death in 1845. Although Story was only an amateur atist at the time, he was granted the commission to design his father's memorial. He traveled to Rome in 1847 and 1849 in order to gather ideas and complete the model for the sculpture. Story returned to Boston in 1850 and briefly went back to his law practice but soon decided to give up law completely and take up sculpture as his career. He returned to Rome in the summer of 1851 and remained there for the rest of his life, with the exception of several visits back to America. Story became best known for his ideal pieces, such as Cleopatra" (1858, replica in MMA), "Lybian Sibyl" (early 1860s, NMAA), and the "Medea" (1864, replicas at MMA and Essex Inst.). He established an international repurtation but was most popular in England, where he was very highly regarded. Story was also known as a poet and essayist and was close friends with the leading literary figures of the day, including Robert and Elizabeth Browning, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry James (his biographer). Story's two sons, Julian Russell and Thomas Waldo Story (see entries), also became artists.
