Diana Reclining compares well to works by Laurent Delvaux and Peter Scheemakers. These two sculptors were in partnership between 1718 and 1728, and together executed a number of notable monuments, several of which are today in Westminster Abbey. During their collaboration, Sheemakers and Delvaux produced several recumbent sculptures in marble of classical and mythological female figures, intended for display locations such as mantelpieces for the English gentry. A marble representation of Ariadne Reclining attributed to Delvaux was sold in these rooms in New York in 2002. The figure shares with the present marble the voluptuous curves and supple looking skin; both women freely slumber with one arm raised above the head and legs casually crossing. The work of the drapery is similar too, crumpling in dense and rhythmic folds. Both sculptures compare similarly to a figure of Ariadne, signed Delvaux, in the Mellon Center, Yale University (see Jacobs, op. cit., no. S16a).
