                                     Aristide Maillol's ( 1861- 1944) twenty sculptures are to be exhibited until 10 February 2013 at Kunsthal museum in Rotterdam. His female figures which are interpreted as an important precursor to Henry Moore and Alberto Giacometti  are given to the famous artist recognition for renewing the sculpture art in France and  international.
Maillol who was born in Banyulus- sur-Mer, Rousillon was a Catalan (French) sculptor, painter and printmaker. He enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1885 and through his early paintings was clearly shown the impression of Paul Gauguin influence on his figures.
In 1985 he began to make small terracotta sculptures and the most important interest for his artistic work was the figurative style of female body.
