Henry E. Huntington began acquiring a large collection of outdoor sculptures in 1910, personally deciding on the exact location for each piece of garden statuary. Some of the statues were moved as many as three times until Huntington was satisfied. The statue, possibly of Dionysus (Bacchus) occupies a prominent location near the entrance to the Huntington Mansion.

The limestone statue is a predominant feature of the Rose Garden, L’Amour Captif de la Jeunesse, with its theme of love and romance, complements its surroundings well. Huntington curators have determined the work of art may have been designed after smaller porcelain designs by Simon-Louis Boizot, the artistic director of the Sèvres porcelain manufactory during the 18th century. However, it was also once thought to have been designed by an architect who worked at Versailles.

On Thursday, June 16, 2016, friend and neighbor Carla Lazzareschi, who among other admirable qualities, volunteers her time as a docent at the Huntington Library, invited my wife Donna and me to come along on a private tour of the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. It was a whirlwind 1 1/2 hour highlight tour of the mansion's history and main components. Although we have been to the property a few times in the past, the experience gave us a greater appreciation for its beauty and significance. As a result we joined the Huntington as Sustaining Members and hope to take advantage of our membership on a frequent basis.
