Provenance Sculpted by Adelaide Johnson (1859-1955) from life [Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)] in 1892. Johnson sculpted a bust of Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1892 for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago of 1893, however it is unclear if this was the actual bust displayed there. According to Barbara Bates' 2000-2001 survey of the Sculpture in the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum, Alva Belmont commissioned a replica in 1909-1910, and then donated the sculpture to the National Woman's Party ca. 1922.
