Smooth and tapered, deprived of any intention to be decorative, the naked female figure arches in the tender gesture of touching the neck of the left foot. As then happened even more conspicuously in the Bather of 1937, it is not an ideally figured body, but the simple realism of a little girl, graced by a spontaneity which lack of malice.
