Looking for the artist of a 20-square series in charcoal/watercolor.

Everything is monochromatic, and looks like it was done in charcoal or watercolor. The copy I have is a 20-piece series of ~8"x8" drawings. The plot: a girl walks up to a statue near a body of water, removes her clothes, and begins to swim. She and the statue's water-reflection begin to... roil, quite passionately, in the water, and in the final panel she ends up in the statue's arms. Any knowledge of the artist or title would be well appreciated.

Were the drawings arranged in a grid? Were they based on Old Master paintings? If so, maybe Dotty Attie?

Naw, they didn't have any specified geometric arrangement. I have put them up in various configurations, and as long as the progression is clear, the story makes sense. Thanks, though.

A picture of three of the frames. Sorry for the delay.
