(From info card):
"Lachaise found his lifelong muse in the ample figure of Isabel Dutaud Nagle, whom he met in 1903 and later married. This sculpture, one of the largest of the many female nudes he created, is based on her physique. Yet Standing Woman goes beyond the particulars of any individual to suggest an archetypal image of ideal beauty."
