The theme of this 1895 pattern produced by Watson has an interesting origin.

Modeled after a statue designed by Frederick William MacMonnies originally given to the Boston Public Library in 1894 by its architect, Charles Follen McKim, the libertine subject was offensive to the prudish sensibilities of some of Boston's citizenry of the time. The gift was then withdrawn and subsequently presented to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
