Seated Nude

Aristide Maillol

This is a 21cm tall bronze sculpture of a nude female figure seated on a stump-like form with her legs extending out in front of her and crossed at the ankles. She leans the weight of her body on her left arm, as her left hand grasps the edge of the stump. Her right arm is bent and raised, with the back of her hand resting against the left side of her head. She is gazing downward and her arm seems to be shielding her face. Her hair is pulled back and gathered in a knot. The patina is dark brown and the metal surface has a uneven appearance.

The Laundress

Aristide Maillol

This bronze statue depicts a female figure kneeling and bending forward with her arms outstretched. She grasps a long piece of cloth which is stretched on the ground in front of her.

Her blouse has flowing sleeves that end at the elbows, leaving her forearms bare. Her hair is pulled back and gatherred into a knot. The bronze has a dark green patina and the surface of the statue is smooth and polished.
