  • These exquisitely detailed portraits demonstrate Scudder’s mastery of sculpting in low relief.
  • Alice Jones was a friend of Scudder. They probably met in Paris, where both women worked in the studio of American sculptor Frederick MacMonnies. The plump feathers that spring from her bonnet hint at the playful quality often found in Scudder’s garden statuary.
