Lachaise designed the sculpture knowing that the work was to be the centerpiece of a formal library, and would be placed on the mantel above the fireplace. He wrote that he "composed the figure in a spirit of tranquil elevation, harmonious to the purpose of the room." Lachaise's most distinguished subjects are life sized draped female figures. The Memorial Art Gallery is fortunate to own two examples, the bronze Standing Woman and the stone Fountain Figure, both on view in the Vanden Brul Sculpture Pavilion.

The existing digital/embark kiosk display image is so deplorable and misrepresentative of the object that it seemed necessary to use the more current, better quality conservation photo. Modifications to the original image file (saved to embark drive: images folder: conservation images folder: 73.75 folder) was to block out the white base the object was photographed on.
