Bartlett began experimenting with lost-wax casting and patination in his Paris studio during the 1890s. For each cast, he altered the application of color, diverging from the conventional surface appearance of bronze in various ways. "Standing Torso of a Woman" is striking in the deliberately aged quality of its finish as well as in the raised seam lines remaining from the molding and casting process.
