Original French Drawing Sanding Nude: A nude drawing in pen and brown ink on paper, signed Pierre Marie Poisson (1876-1953).

This work represents a naked woman standing with her hands resting on a pillar. The pencil strokes are fine, almost fragile. The curves on the model have very beautiful proportions, subtly contrasted with a silhouette.

About the artist: Pierre-Marie Poisson studied sculpture at the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse. After a diverse and accomplished career, he obtained a medal of honor at the Salon des Artistes Français in 1907 and was knighted in the Legion of Honor in 1923.
The French Republic ordered a bust of Marianne from him in 1932, and he produced a statue in a massive and stripped-down style for official buildings.
