"RE: Works at Cranbrook Academy of Art Museum:
Two Sisters/Mother and Child
Childhood Friends
Torso of a Dancer
Persephone (Bacchante)

On display in he museum are two other works by Fredericks. One is Torso of a Dancer in black Belgian marble which is dated to 1939. Our list of works at Cranbrook dates it to 1938. Our bronze at the gallery is dated to 1938 also. Our bronze at the gallery is a free-standing form. In this marble one part of the rough stone was left to form a base which the Torso is incorporated into and rest upon."
