Catalogue Note

This animated bronze is cast from Sargent's sculptural maquette for a painted mural for The Memorial Library of Harvard University. The model has been described as 'a handsomely realized preparatory study (...) which is the superior work when compared with the finished painting.' (op. cit.). Another cast is in the collection of the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C.
