Aarne Miikmaa "Istuv naisakt"

Aarne Miikmaa "Istuv naisakt"

The work of Aarne Miikmaa (until 1939 Harald Oskar Miikman) is a rare example of the artist’s drawings. A nude, which has most probably been created as a home assignment, carries the aim to grasp in a brilliant manner some of the most important traits of nude drawing. So Miikmaa for instance is dealing with the problem of light and shadow, trying to depict the latter both on the nude and on the drapery. From another hand he has positioned the model so that her posture would seem as interesting as possible. The nude’s neutrality is even more being emphasized by her glance that has been turned away from the picture rooms, which is not being directed towards the viewer.
