Augustus St. Gauden's memorial, "Grief," to Clover Adams, who took her own life. Clover Adams was the wife of Henry Adams, who commissioned the memorial. The grief, referenced by the name of the sculpture, is that of the widower, Henry Adams. Marion is shrouded, her head and face withdrawn into the shroud. She is depicted as disengaged from the world. The shroud has multiple references. The most obvious reference is to the mantle of the Virgin Mary, symbolizing Heaven and Divinity.
