Footnotes

  • Olivier Lorquin has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this work.

    In 1912, Frantz Jourdain, the founder of the Salon D'Automne commissioned Aristide Maillol to create a monument to celebrate his friend, Paul Cézanne who had died six years earlier. Before conceiving the final cast of the sculpture, the artist made several preparatory studies, exploring various reclining poses. The present work is one of these studies in which the artist represented Cézanne's celebrated reclining female muse with one leg higher than the other. The finished sculpture in stone was ready in 1925 and installed in the Jardins des Tuileries in Paris later moved to the Musée d'Orsay.
