Barefoot Kate in Spring

Barefoot Kate in Spring

Taken at the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site’s sunken reflecting pool in the Perennial Garden, this white Italian marble statue is known as “Barefoot Kate”. The statue is of a semi-nude nymph testing the waters of the pool with her toe. It was carved by sculptor Antonia Galli in the mid-19th century and installed within the garden sometime between 1904 and 1910.

This photo was taken with a Canon EOS70 at 100mm on June 15, 2017.
