Location: Perimeter Wall near Artists' Gate entrance to the Park at 59th street and Avenue of the Americas. Details Sculptor: Louis J. Daumas (1801-1887) Dedicated: May 1951 Material: Bronze on granite pedestal Donor: City of Buenos Aires. The monument is a smaller-scale replica cast from the original, erected in the Plaza de San Martín in Buenos Aires in 1862. It was a gift from the City of Buenos Aires to the City of New York. José de San Martín, an Argentine general, helped Argentina, Chile and Perú gain independence from the Spaniards. The monument depicts him leading his armed forces into battle. This work is one of a trio of bronze equestrian sculptures representing Latin-American leaders.
