Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol was a French sculptor, painter, printmaker, ceramicist and tapestry-maker, known for his classical and simplified depictions of the female nude. The artist drew inspiration from Greek and Roman sculpture, as well as from more modern sources including the work of Paul Cezanne, Paul Gaugin and the Nabis, a group he joined early on in his career.
