Paul Delvaux, Nude in the Garden, 1966

From the National Galleries of Scotland:

The main figure in this drawing is Danielle Caneel, who modelled for Delvaux from 1966, the year this work was made. Caneel inspired much of Delvaux’s work of the late 1960s and 1970s. Her slim figure and blond hair contrast with the stockier, dark-haired women who appear in the artist’s earlier works. The device of presenting figures in an architectural setting is found throughout Delvaux’s work. Here, the arches in the background act as a framing device for the figures. An inscription in the bottom corner notes that the drawing was made in St-Idesbald. Delvaux spent much of his time in the Belgian town from the 1950s and it is the location of the Paul Delvaux museum.
