Reclining Woman

Vincenc Makovský

Vincenc Makovský - Reclining Woman
In the second half of the 1920s, sculpture transformed and there was a shift away from traditional figural orientation to abstracted modelled forms in the generation of Czech sculptors studying with Jan Štursa, who drew stimuli from the latest development on the Paris art scene. Makovský’s relief Reclining Woman is one of the best exemplars of Czech inter-war sculpture. The artist employed the cubist analytical method to break the classical figural form. He deconstructed the nude into separate fragments devoid of form and enhanced its raw nature by inserting metal elements.
