Nude Leaning on Her Elbows
Sanguine on paper
28,3 x 21,5 cm – 11 1/8 x 8 1/2 in.
by Maurice Savin (1884 – 1973)
Dictionaries can prove this: Maurice Savin could do anything! Thus, this bard of the love of life was in turn a painter, a sculptor, an engraver, a medallist, a lithographer and a draughtsman in a style that does remind of Auguste Renoir. Nowadays, many museums exhibit his works, in Algiers, Cairo, Gothenburg, Lausanne, London, Oslo, Paris, Saint-Étienne, Stockholm, Tunis and Warsaw. According to Jacques Busse, Ruben’s generosity can be found in his passion for nude.
