- Functioning as spouts, a trio of open-mouthed frogs splash water against a playful young boy. A quest for dynamism guided Scudder in the selection of children as her models. This bronze marked the beginning of a series of ornamental garden sculptures.
- In a 1912 New York Times article Scudder expressed her preference for bronze over marble in the creation of her sculptures, particularly in fountains, observing that “it took such wonderful colors under the water.”
- The famed New York architect Stanford White’s acquisition of the first Frog Fountain led to a highly profitable working relationship. A fortuitous encounter with White at a Manhattan intersection led to the sale that became “the dominating factor in [her] life.”
purchased (from the artist?) by the Women's Department Club in 1928; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 1984.
