Femme assise main croisées grande taille exemplifies Lobo’s fascination with the feminine form. Born in the small Zamora village of Cerecinos de Campos in 1910, Lobo fled his home country in 1939 following the Spanish Civil War. On moving to Montparnasse he formed friendships with Pablo Picasso as well as fellow sculptors Jacques Lipchitz and Henri Laurens. Lobo became particularly close with Laurens who offered him a job working in his studio and provided Lobo with his own space.

Working alongside Laurens and his reclining nudes, Lobo discovered his affinity for the female figure. This was an interest further inspired by the Iberian and Cycladic sculpture he first encountered on a visit to the Archaeological Museum in Madrid. Lobo parted from Laurens in the 1950s and transitioned toward his elegant and refined style inspired by the work of Constantin Brancusi and Jean Arp. The present work, with its soft curves and abstracted minimal form is a classic example of twentieth-century sculpture.
