‘Eve’ was purchased by Sir Philip Hendy on behalf of Harlow Development Corporation and donated to the Harlow Art Trust by Ben Hyde Harvey. Hendy used his influence to acquire the work from the Rodin Museum in Paris for £2,360 in 1959. The cast was one of a limited edition. The sculpture was originally sited on Broad Walk with the intention of it being sited in the Water Gardens once this location had been completed.
