Description "Water Lilies" by Bessie Potter Vonnoh

Figure/girl/plant/water lily

"A girl stands on a rock, looking down at a water lily drooping from her hand. The hair is in a mass of loose curls on top of the head. Surfaces are impressionistically blended so that details are indistinctly seen, as if through a veil. This statuette, intended for a lily pool, was first exhibited in 1913 and awarded the National Arts Club Prize of the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors in 1920." ("Brookgreen Gardens Sculpture", Beatrice Gilman Proske, 1968).
