Erskine Memorial Fountain Grant Park, Atlanta, Georgia
...Mrs. Ward commissioned New York sculptor J. Massey Rhind to
create a fountain that would serve as a public memorial to her father.
Rhind was a very distinguished artist. Commisssioned by William
Waldorf Astor, he had designed the famous memorial doors of
Trinity Church in New York in honor of Astor's deceased father.
Rhind came to Atlanta for the fountain's formal unveiling and was
on hand to receive compliments on his creation, which was then
considered to be one of Atlanta's most notable landmarks...

Colleoni Clinton Park, Newark, New Jersey
High atop a massive pedestal is J. Massey Rhind's exact replica of
Andrea de Verrocchio's 15th century equestrian statue in Venice, Italy,
of Bartolomeo Colleoni, a Venetian warrior. This work was donated to
the city by Christian Feigenspan, a brewer who lived nearby, and
unveiled during Newark's 250th anniversary in 1916. Feigenspan
commissioned the work after Rhind, who also did the 1912 George
Washington statue in Washington Park, told him that the Colleoni
was the most beautiful sculpture in the world...
