This piece is a wonderful example of his skill with the beautifully executed proportions and soft contours of the head, gentle pout, uplifted eyebrows and wide eyes gazing at the world before him. The original piece is part of the Andrew W. Mellon Collection at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
