Notes

The original plaster of Paris model of this work was acquired from the artist by Mrs S. Dowling in 1928. On 31 October 1975 it was offered at auction by Sotheby Parke Bernet South Africa, in Johannesburg (lot 81) where it was acquired by Mr Morris Cohen. In 1982, Mr Cohen was granted permission by the University of Pretoria, the copyright holders of Van Wouw’s work, to have 12 bronze casts made of which this is one.
cf. Duffey, AE (2008) Anton van Wouw: The Smaller Works, Pretoria: Protea Book House, another cast from the edition is illustrated on page 92.
