Torso of Ile de France

Aristide Maillol French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Petrie Court Café

The Ile de France began its existence as a torso. There were, in fact, three separate versions of it between 1907 and 1921. Only in 1925 did Maillol feel it necessary to add the extremities to create the final Ile de France, perhaps best understood as an augmentation rather than a completion of the earlier torso.
