The beauty of the female form inspired Maillol throughout his career, and the present sculpture is one of his most idealized representations. The sculpture, rendered with naturalistic approach,  is a medley of formal quotations that call to mind some of the greatest sculpture of the classical age (see fig. 1).

Working at the turn of the twentieth century, Maillol believed that the natural contours and essential beauty of the feminine form were best communicated through the use of simple, elegant lines. According to John Rewald, "To celebrate the human body, particularly the feminine body, seems to have been Maillol's only aim. He did this in a style from which all grandiloquence is absent, a style almost earthbound and grave, where static poses and contained gestures convey an impression of gravity and stability" (Aristide Maillol (exhibition catalogue), Paul Rosenberg & Co., New York, 1958-60, pp. 6 & 7).
