Waitress or Childs’ Restaurant Waitress is Talcott’s version of an employee of the once-popular chain of eateries. Talcott exhibited a wood version of this sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in 1930. In reviewing this exhibition, Helen Read said of Talcott’s sculpture: “Mr. Talcott uses sculpture as a medium for expressing his reaction to life about him. He doesn’t find modern clothes or the occupations and pastimes of today unsympathetic to plastic expression. Hence it is not surprising to find that he has found sculptural material in a ‘Childs’ Restaurant Waitress’ and ‘Six-Day Bicycle Rider’, the titles of two of the pieces shown.”
