Description

Maillol was interested in conveying the sensual curves of the female form. As a sculptor he worked from both memory and drawings. He made numerous studies of the nude which are related to, if not directly preparatory for his sculptures. He explained, "The important thing is the general idea...I am seeking beauty, not character."
