CORSANI, Patricia Viviana. Honores y renuncias: la escultora argentina Lola Mora y la fuente de los debates. An. mus. paul. [online]. 2007, vol.15, n.2, pp.169-196. ISSN 0101-4714.

Lola Mora (1867-1936) was the most widely acclaimed and discussed Argentine sculptress of the late 19th and early 20th century. The written press of Buenos Aires began to follow the development of her artistic career as soon as she returned from an academic program abroad in 1900, and placed her at the center stage, thus monopolizing all the columnists' attention. This research revolves around one of her most famous works, namely the Fountain of the Nereids, popularly known as Lola Mora's Fountain. It is a sculptural group carved in Carrara marble and inaugurated on May 21, 1903, on Paseo de Julio. We will be examining the issues that were debated around this sculptural group as to its original location in 1903, which turned the discussion into a unique process, because so far no debate of this nature has ever taken place around an ornamental work for the city.
