Aristide Maillol

French , 1861 - 1944

French sculptor, woodcut artist and painter Aristide Maillol was born in 1861. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and then allied himself with the Nabis, a group of artists who were active in France during the 1890s.

When Maillol was in his forties, he turned to sculpture and quickly developed his characteristic style of creating strong, energetic, nude figures of women.

Maillol also produced woodcuts, illustrating “Daphnis and Chloe” and the works of Ovid and Vergil.
