J. Connor and J. Rosenkranz, Rediscoveries in American Sculpture: Studio Works 1893-1939, Houston, Texas, 1989, p. 82.
Designed as a fountain, Over the Waves was created in reaction to the demand for garden sculpture in the twenties. The work was made in two sizes: a 54-inch bronze of which eleven were cast, and a 12-inch bronze which was cast in an edition of six.
