When this piece was exhibited it was criticised for its lack of completeness. 'The Studio' journal reported that, 'it is to be regretted that Professor Legros did no model in its entirety his large framed creation of budding womanhood; a torso with truncated head and limbs can surely only be acceptable when it becomes so by accident'.
