This one-of-a-kind unframed original pencil and ink drawing was created by New Orleans artist Emilie Rhys, from a photo of the sculpture, on December 24, 2019 at the Hotel Elysee in New York City. The artist, while visiting NYC on vacation, often sat in the hotel library and chose a book with photographs of art or historic photographs from which to draw.

There is a long history of artists turning for inspiration to the work of their predecessors, creating copies or interpretations of well-known masterworks.
