The Burnett Memorial Fountain in the Conservatory Garden in Central Park, at center of its "south wing", just as the Untermeyer Fountain (Three Dancing Maidens) is at the center of the "north wing". Embury designed the fountain in 1936 as the setting for the 1926 Girl and Boy statue of Bessie Potter Vonnoh.
