Angel of Grief
Die Skulptur auf dem protestantischen Friedhof, Rom
Seitenansicht

Das Grabmal Angel of Grief (Angelo del Doloro/Engel der Trauer) wurde 1894 von dem US-amerikanischen Bildhauer und Dichter William Wetmore Story (1819 - 1895) für sich und seine Frau geschaffen und steht auf dem protestantischen Friedhof in Rom.

Emelyn Story starb am 7. Januar 1895 und ihr Ehemann folgte ihr am 7. Oktober desselben Jahres. Beide sind unter dem Grabmal bestattet. Das Kunstwerk wurde vielfach nachgebildet, sowohl in exakt kopierten als auch mehr oder weniger ähnlichen Posen. Das Motiv wurde außerdem auf mehreren Covern von Musikalben verwendet.
