Description: signed H. Gervex (lower left)

oil on canvas

FRENCH, 1852-1929
ROULÉE PAR LA VAGUE

Notes: In 1896, Gervex began a series of oil studies in preparation for a monumental La Naissance de Venus, inspired by Alexandre Cabanal's work of the same title. In each study, a crashing wave tosses a nude woman almost weightlessly across the surf. Gervex exhibited the final version in the Salon of 1907 where it was purchased by the city of Paris.

Dimensions: 10 5/8 by 19 1/4 in.

27 by 48.9cm
