"The model is taken from one of Dalou's studies for his monument to the Republique. Once again we are reminded of the strength yet simplicity of Dalou's modelling, with the tension of the muscles, as the torso twists, superbly portrayed. Only cast by Susse Frere this model is numbered one and was made using the lost wax technique." — Robert Bowman
