Citation"Head of a Woman
(Aristide Maillol) , 1951.81,” Harvard Art Museums collections online, Mar 24, 2023, https://hvrd.art/o/228753.
The young woman faces forward, looking forward beyond the viewer. Her hair style is neoclassical and close to the head with wavy bangs outlining her forehead and temples, the rest of her hair is tucked under a cloth cap. She has full lips, no smile, high cheekbones, and a placid look on her face. The eyes are big and blank. Her neck is seen with the suggestion of a neckline wearing a simple scoop neck dress. The sculpture is painted with varying browns and warm tones to mimic the look of bronze patina.
