John J. Szaton

John J. Szaton was a Polish-American sculptor born in 1907 in Ludlow, Massachusetts.

The Coal Miner

In 1963 Szaton collaborated with artist Vachel Davis to reinterpret Davis’s iconic 1946 painting American Coal Miner into a permanent, sculptural memorial to coal miners. Szaton’s 7-ft. bronze statue, The Coal Miner, is displayed on the lawn of the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. It was dedicated on October 16, 1964, and became his most widely known sculpture. A second The Coal Miner statue, cast in 1966, is installed on the west side of the Indiana Statehouse and was dedicated in 1967.


Szaton died in 1966 and is buried in Cedar Park Cemetery, Calumet Park, Illinois.
