The playwright was a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

Tuda is a model who is posing for Sirio's statue of Diana, which is to be the acme of the art of sculpture. Tuda falls in love with Sirio, and to force his hand in marriage threatens to pose also for Sirio's rival. Faced with this, Sirio sacrifices his bachelorhood for his art. But his old mistress still has a key to his quarters, and still makes regular calls on him. Jealously, Tuda at last offers her services to Sirio's rival. Sirio not only ruins his rival's work of art, but scars him in a duel; and then assaults Tuda. The old sculptor who has been like a father to Sirio now seizes him, and Sirio is killed. Tuda is bereft of both her love and her enshrinement in the statue of Diana.
