This painting was inspired also by sculptural
objects seen at the Allegheny Cemetery in
Pittsburgh. A sarcophagus bore on each
corner a small statue such as the one
painted here. As I looked at them, I could not
help thinking they possessed a monumental
quality greater than their actual size. So I
painted the figure as though she were as
large as something that might have been
seen on the Parthenon.
