"Bronze Sculpture - La Nuit - 1902-1909 - Aristide Maillol"
The adjoining sculpture is a replica of the artwork "La Nuit" – in English: Night – by the French sculptor Aristide Maillol. Maillol focused the female nude in monumental-round sculptural forms of consummate symmetry. The sculpture suggests peace and harmonious balance. Her legs are bent, her arms rest on her knees and her forehead lies on her arms. This posture covered her face. The famous sculpture “La Nuit” (Night) is one of the first monumental sculptures by Aristide Maillol. The original is located at the Schlossplatz (Castle's Place) in Stuttgart, Germany, Baden-Württemberg. The sculpture is designed faithfully; the adjoining replica bears the signature of the artist.
Each of our products is a handmade piece and created by the lost-wax-method. Every singe sculpture is chiseled and patinated by hand and we have established a strict quality control system to ensure the high quality of our products.
Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol (1861-1944) was a French sculptor, painter, and printmaker. The subject of nearly all of Maillol's mature work is the female body, treated with a classical emphasis on stable forms. The figurative style of his large bronzes is perceived as an important precursor to the greater simplifications of Henry Moore, and his serene classicism set a standard for European (and American) figure sculpture until the end of World War II. The journalist Josep Pla said of Maillol, "These archaic ideas, Greek, were the great novelty Maillol brought into the tendency of modern sculpture. What you need to love from the ancients is not the antiquity; it is the sense of permanent, renewed novelty, that is due to the nature and reason."
