Like Ricketts's 'Orpheus and Eurydice', displayed alongside, this small bronze shows the influence of Rodin's work. The intimacy of the subject and the dappled modelling of the surface both follow his example. Ricketts had seen Rodin's sculpture in Paris in 1890, and met him in 1903, when Rodin visited London as President of the International Society of Artists.
