Gath, concerned with his own burial, built this lonely tomb about 20 years before his death, which came on April 15, 1914, in New York City. By this time his great wealth had dwindled and the near penniless. Gath was buried in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania cemetery instead of his own tomb as he had desired.
Gath's empty tomb mutely symbolizes the uncertainties of Life, Fame and Fortune and the certainty of death.
