The reading Museum´s European Collection contains a bronze cast of The Fate and the Convalescent (La Parque et La Convalescente), created in 1894. The pair consists of an old woman representing one of the Fates seated on a rock embracing a young nude girl lying across her knees. The old woman is derived from She Who Once Was The Helmetmaker´s Beautiful Wife or The Old Courtesan. But the pair is also known as Triumphant Youth (Jeunesse triomphante).
