Description A plaster version of this bust was an early work by Rinehart. After his mother's death in 1868, he created a marble version for himself and several plaster versions for family members. At the sculptor's death in 1874 a plaster and a marble version are listed as being in his studio. It is likely that William T. Walters acquired this marble bust around that time. (Compare to a photograph of the sitter reproduced as plate 1, courtesy of Miss Olivia Rinehart, in William Sener Rusk, "William Henry Rinehart: Sculptor," published 1939.)
