A signed original drawing by French artist Aristide Maillol. Maillol (1861-1944) was accepted into the Ecole des beaux-arts in 1885, where he studied under several notable painters. He subsequently joined Les Nabis, a group of young French artists, at the recommendation of Gauguin, and began working in tapestry. Failing eyesight prompted him to focus increasingly on sculpture, particularly representations of female nude figures, though he periodically explored two-dimensional media as well. Condition: good to very good. Minor chipping and closed tears to edges of sheet, none of which impact the image. Signed in lower right corner.
