Gimond was a pupil of the sculptor Maillol. Fry had written an article 'The Sculptures of Maillol' for the Burlington in April 1910, in which he presented Maillol as the leading figure in modern sculpture, and contrasted his preoccupation with form and monumentality with Rodin's obsession with feeling. Here Gimond follows his master in observing what Fry described as the 'architectural unity of the structure' obtained by a 'few synthetized planes'.
