    Does exuberant in the context mean enthusiastic?

    When the bronze figure of ‘Science’ had been moulded, cast, when it arrived from the foundry and was finally set up, Miss Snell had been exuberant. Here was an honour and a compliment indeed! Neighbouring figures were ‘Art’, ‘Commerce’, ‘Industry’. Most likely she would get to know their models. Doubtless the sculptor, Fanshawe, was acquainted with them and would introduce her. There was even restrained mention of her (though to be sure ‘publicity’, running to a scant ‘stick’ or two, had not been lavish) in four papers. Vaguely, she had regarded her modelship, as a portal to success.

    Not There, John Metcalfe, 194?

    Thanks a lot.

    I would say it means enthusiastic and excited.
