Maillol created a smaller version of this sculpture in 1898, and enlarged it for a marble version in 1930 at the request of his Danish patron Johannes Rump. According to the late Dina Vierny, there were eight bronzes cast from this larger marble, including a numbered edition of six. Other casts from this edition are in the collections of the Musée National d'Art Occidental in Tokyo and the Tuileries Gardens in Paris.
Olivier Lorquin has confirmed that the present sculpture was cast during the artist's lifetime and that Maillol himself supervised the patination of the bronze.
