The Original Curvaceous Beauty Of The Body–Aristide Maillol Sculptures

A French sculptor as famous as Rodin, Aristide Maillol, a fine art authority, commented on Maillol: “If Rodin’s ideal was to turn marble and bronze into flesh, then Maillol’s ideal was to turn flesh into marble and bronze.”
He argued that female statues should maintain a kind of purification that originated in ancient Greece and Rome, and likened the original curvilinear beauty of the female body to a part of nature.
He used the natural rhythm of the human body to symbolize a kind of architecture, a kind of nature, or an ecological phenomenon.
Although taking ancient Greece as a model, it pays more attention to simplifying and purifying the ancient tradition, thus appearing the modern tendency of highlighting the volume and volume.

It is rare to use the female body to create a monument to a historical figure, but he has an innovative thought and unique artistic insight. Louis August Blanqui had been called by Marx as a fearless revolutionary, although suffering, the revolutionary will is strong. Maillol finally created this image of a nude woman to show the hero’s monument: an unusually sturdy, muscular woman, full of great inner strength, hands tied behind her back, turning sideways, looking back, and striding forward with a firm, powerful stride. The whole shape is full of huge explosive power, the torsion of the unyielding body symbolizes the unyielding spirit of the struggle for freedom.
