The beauty of the female body fascinated Maillol throughout his career, and the present sculpture is one of his most idealized representations. The present work is related to Maillol's allegorical sculpture entitled La Seine. Maillol's first rendering of this figure in the 1920s is emphatically avant-garde, characterized by a sleek linearity that would define the Modernist aesthetic.  Bertrand Lorquin describes the true artistry at the heart of Maillol's work:  "Maillol's sculpture achieves an ideal balance through the accuracy of its proportions as well as the harmoniousness of its compositions.  Paul Valéry once said that sculpture is an art full of surprises, and at each moment the sculptor chooses his viewpoint among an infinite array of possibilities.  A Maillol statue is a perpetual revelation of the type of beauty which the sculptor invented" (B. Lorquin, Aristide Maillol , op. cit., pp. 102-03).

According to the late Dina Vierny, who issued a certificate for this work, the present bronze belongs to an edition of six numbered casts, plus two artist's proofs.  The bronze was created from the sand casting method at the Emile Godard foundry in Paris and is numbered 1/6.
