American sculptor. He grew up in St Paul, MN, where he attended evening classes at the St Paul Institute of Art from 1892 to 1903. In 1905 he went to New York and studied at the Art Students League, before becoming an assistant to the sculptor Solon Borglum (18681922). The following year Manship moved to Philadelphia to study at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In 1909 he won the Prix de Rome and attended the American Academy in Rome (190912). During this period he not only received rigorous technical training but also toured Italy, Greece and Egypt, where he became the first of many modern American sculptors who were attracted to the abstract qualities of Etruscan, ancient Greek and Egyptian art.
