Aristide Maillol. : Exposition au Palais des Congrès de Perpignan du 10 juin au 10 septembre 2000.
"The work of Maillol has opened a new register of forms in the history of 20th century sculpture, and his sculpture, which has its source in the 1880s and 1890s, will considerably influence the Modern art and imposing this vision of the refined form and smooth volumes in the field of statuary art One could say that Maillol was inhabited by a vision and he never stopped looking for its translation into forms. Of the art he pursues, he expresses it through a single theme, a single subject: the female body which becomes the support of all his work. The whole impression of this conviction is that the body is a thought about the world and not its description."
