Gallery Label: 
This bust was probably modeled in Washington, D.C., where Mills maintained his large studio and foundry. It was executed during one of MacGowan's return visits to the United States from China when he lectured on the problems and the potential of Asia. The bust is one of the last pieces known to have been done by Mills, who had earlier gained fame as the first American to cast an equestrian statue, that of Andrew Jackson.
