The present cast is a particularly fine one which was sold in these rooms in 2014 and came from a private Scottish family collection. It was purchased by the consignor's great grandparents around 1916, when they acquired a large residence near Glasgow, which was remodelled for the family by the fashionable early 20th-century architect Sir Robert Stodart Lorimer. The present sculpture would have represented a stylish addition to the house, as Frampton's Peter Pan was one of the most popular sculptures in Britain at the time. Glasgow was a centre of the Arts and Crafts movement, with numerous exhibitions being held at the Kelvingrove Museum. 'The New Sculpture' was closely related to the Arts and Crafts and so it is of little surprise that the bronze entered into the collection of a prominent Glasgow family at this time. The presence of the bronze in the hands of one family for almost a century provides explanation for its very good condition.
