Catalogue Note

This work was reputedly shown at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900, however it has not been possible to identify a sculptor by the name 'Prof. Perales'. One candidate could be the Spanish sculptress Diana José Perales, who was active in Valencia at the turn of the 20th century. However she died relatively young and is unlikely to have achieved the title of Professor. A more likely alternative might therefore be the Italian Edgardo Peralis, the Bolognese sculptor active in Florence and Rome.
