The massive dignity of the calm, Mediterranean classicism that came easily to Maillol, a reaction against the vivid movement of Rodin's work, was beginning to bore the public. Vierny's dynamic personality changed all this and inspired the approach that produced The River, a figure with the usual Maillol characteristics - the fully rounded and hollowed-out forms - but in vivid action, sprawling full length, Vierny's wavy hair a metaphor for the running water. … [Read more...] about Dina Vierny
