UIUC: Krannert Art Museum [ Blind - by Lorado Taft]

 Blind - by Lorado Taft
Location: Krannert Art Museum
at UIUC [University of Illinois at Urabana-Champaign]
I need more information on this. When was it completed? Was it a commissioned work?

Excerpt from the Oregon Public Library's website.. click here..
This figural group depicts a group of blind people rendered from a scene from Maeterlinck’s tragic drama, Les Aveugles (The Blind) in which the group is wandering lost through a forest without the ability to see; the group unifies with the hope that the young child (positioned in the center), who is able to see, will lead them to salvation.
