DALOU, Jules

Bather Drying her Right Foot

Bronze, height 35 cm

Dalou was fascinated by the subject of the female nude and worked and re-worked a series of models depicting nudes in guises typical of the genre, such as before and after the bath, toweling themselves, standing, bending down, or seated, taken by surprise or removing their stockings.
