Aristide Joseph-Bonaventure Maillol

Reclining Nude – 1926-1936 – Red Conté crayon, with touches of charcoal and stumping on ivory laid paper

I found this drawing interesting due to the fact that it has been drawn with a red crayon rather than a black/grey and this gives it a more nude look in my own personal opinion. the way that you can see the marks that the artist has used and the nude has a sense of softness to it. The way that the fabric around the nude goes in a curve around the model draws your eye in a circle around the piece.
