The sculptor recalled that this bust was executed about 1902, during a summer spent at the seaside resort of Forte dei Marmi, near Viareggio. The sitter, a ten-year-old boy Carlino Migliorini, came from Florence and was of Anglo-Italian parentage, his mother being British, his father Italian. (Information from the artist, I November 1957.)
