Seated Nude Girl

  • John B. Flannagan, Seated Nude Girl, n.d., limestone, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Gertrude W. Dennis, 1992.112

Luce Center Label

John Flannagan carved many sculptures that depicted young women. He avoided individual portraits and instead simplified the details to create a universal image of the female figure. He allowed the natural texture of the stone to become part of the design, and in Seated Nude Girl the outline of the figure appears to emerge effortlessly from the rounded block.
