The Augustus Saint Gauden portrait bas-relief, which called the Warren Library home for more than 80 years, was moved from the former library space in late December for cleaning. The plaque, which was a gift to the hospital from the Gray Family, depicts Anna Lyman Gray, who was an active member of the Ladies Visiting Committee. Gray’s husband, John Chipman Gray, commissioned the portrait of his wife for $6,000 in 1902. Before placement in the Warren Library, the piece was displayed in Philadelphia, New York City, Pittsburg, Chicago and Indianapolis. After it is cleaned, the portrait will be placed in a new location at the MGH.
