Aristide Maillol is noted in art history as a diverse artist, but few know that in addition to sculpture, he was also recognized as a graphic artist. Many of his works in pencil, chalk, and copper engraving, such as "Deux femme assise sous des feuillage". Their intimate proximity under the foliage is unobtrusive, with their knees drawn up and their waist twisted.
In his art, Aristide Maillol broke with the sketchy direction that Rodin represented without painting and plastic composition. In his works, he sought more sculptural closeness and the most architectural structure of simplified forms. This conception of art is also reflected in the current work, on which Maillol's sculptural nudes, reminiscent of Gauguin's female figures, sit side by side in intimate proximity.
Aristide Maillol is an artist who depicts her models without any pose, modeling them for simplicity. That is why it is considered to be a prominent representative of modern sculpture beyond the avant-garde.
One first interesting thing about "Deux femme assise sous des feuillage" as a drypoint work is, that it is based on a red chalk drawing that is currently on offer in an art gallery in Paris.

It is a further curiosity that we can see 2 stamps on the work of Maillol's work. The dry stamp on the paper itself indicates the name of the publisher (H. Petiet Editeur Paris), which specialized in publishing and selling works by artists such as Bonnard, Vuillard, Signac, Matisse, Derain and Picasso. The collection stamp shows that the publisher bought the first copy of the copper engraving (1/150) for his own collection.
