Standing Female Nude, with Raised Right Arm, David Pièrre Giottino Humbert de Superville, 1803
De Superville used fine hatching to lend the body of this young women great volume. The pose, that is standing in contrapposto with one arm raised, is decidedly classical. To help models pose with their arm in the air as long as possible, special aids were used. The model in this drawing probably held onto a rope with her right hand, but this was omitted by the artist.
