Catalogue Note

The likely inspirational source for this relief is September Morn, circa 1912, by Paul Émile Chabas (1869-1937) in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. September Morn became a succès de scandale in the United States in May 1913, when Anthony Comstock, head of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, protested against the painting as supposedly immoral. The painting became famous and reproductions of the painting were sold.
