Rinehart probably modeled this bust of Jennie Walters (1853-1922) when she was traveling with her father in Europe in 1873. He had it carved into marble the following year, shortly before his death.

Upon her return to America, Jennie joined her brother Henry Walters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she met Warren Delano III, whom she married in 1876.
