Maillol’s wife was the model for Femme Assise. The piece evokes a sense of tranquillity and repose. Comparing it to his later works which were reduced to simplified volumes, Femme Assise is relatively naturalistic. The woman depicted is sat down with an earth bound movement which is well balanced with a focus on hand placement and weight distribution.  Interestingly, Maillol was a very versatile artist: a painter, tapestry designer and illustrator, but after1900 he concentrated on sculpture, where he remained prolific. Maillol’s subjects where predominantly female nudes, and Femme Assise is a perfect example of a sculpture of this subject conceived during this period.
