    Pompon completed various versions of the 'Pigeon Boulant' from the mid-1920s, including a plaster version that is in the Musée des Beaux-Arts,Dijon, a version in 'pierre lithographique' and a smaller bronze version that is in the Musée A.G. Poulain, Vernon. This finely carved marble version was a personal order to the architect Ernest Robert Graham (1868-1936). Ernest Robert Graham was one Chicago's most famed architects of the first half of the twentieth century. His firm of Graham, Andersen, Probst & White were responsible for much of the city's iconic Art Deco buildings including the Wrigley Building, Field Museum of Natural History and Merchandise Mart, which when completed in 1930, was the world's largest building.
