Maillol. A different view
The Kunsthaus came up with idea of an extra publication, to accompany the Zurich presentation of an exhibition that was originally conceived at the Musée d’Orsay. In it, ‘Vénus au collier’, a life-size female nude by Maillol from the Kunsthaus Collection, is sent on a journey through the museum’s galleries, encountering works by female artists along the way, ranging from the figural to the abstract, and from neoclassical through modern to contemporary. Maillol’s thematically traditional depiction of woman is thus contrasted with the artistic work of women, to reconsider his oeuvre from a modern-day perspective.
