Rebeck first exhibited this sculpture at the 1923 May Show and won first prize. The Bulletin of the Cleveland Museum of Art (photo above from page 3) wrote: “Steven A. Rebeck repeats his success of last year in winning first prize with a Study of a Head at Three Weeks. In this study, sense of mass and of structure is especially well realized. It is a problem seen fundamentally and rendered with the greatest accuracy and skill.” The study was based on his son, Paul Rebeck.
The left image is the original while the casting on the right is from the estate of Rebeck.
In 1934, Rebeck exhibited a smaller, ceramic version of the work at the May Show (below). The entry states that the work was limited to ten castings and sold for $25 apiece.
