In 1938, the city of Toulouse in southern France commissioned Aristide Maillot to commemorate the pilots of the pioneering airmail service, l'Aeropostale, who had been killed in the line of duty

ABOUT MAILLOT: Aristide Maillot (1861-1944) focused almost exclusively on a single subject--the female nude. Depicting a handful of models repeatedly, Maillot used the female form to explore the way mass, volume, line and contour occupy space. Influenced by classical art, his work evokes its serenity and harmony, but his own approach to the human form opened up a new perspective in modern sculpture.
