“There is a long succession of statues, reliefs, and statuettes, like his Ophelia, Cupid and Psyche , Leda, St. George, and the mural monument which has for its motive, Love and Life, Sacred and Profane , in all of which can be perceived the purposeful and intelligent working out of a very consistent aesthetic intention.” — W. K. West, The Studio (1905): 298
