Catalogue Note

Lucy Krohg was the companion of the Norwegian sculptor Per Lasson Krohg (1889-1965), who is famous for the monumental mural he created for the United Nations Security Council Chamber. Lucy Krohg, who had a long and tempestuous relationship with the painter Jules Pascin (1885-1930), was one of Howard's most important models and was the subject of the sculptor's first public exhibition in the United States, at the New York Armory Show in 1913 (see lot 108). The present nude represents a progression in Howard's style from one evoking Maillol to a cleaner, most classicising, aesthetic, in line with interwar sculptors such as Charles Despiau (1874-1946). The marble is carved en taille direct and has a beautiful polished surface.
