Description George A. Lucas, the Paris based art agent of William T. and Henry Walters, noted in his diary under the date of December 24, 1897, that Henry Walters ordered this figure from Proctor on 3 August, that it was cast by Perzinski at Versailles, and delivered on 24 December. The price paid the artist was 700 francs. The figure was Proctor's first composition for the life-size bronzes which he later made for the Q Street Bridge in Washington D.C.. The Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio, owns the bronze models for the Washington statues.
