This rather languid pose by Adrien Deriaz is sometimes mistakenly included with the artists' studies done by Marconi and Igout, neither of whom was living during Adrien's career.  I can understand the mistake, though, given the style, posing, and rock used as a prop.


  1. I can see why some sources attribute this to Marconi or Igout, very similar. A truly wonderful pose, it rather sums up this era nicely. Photography partly replacing the drawn or painted image. Despite its vintage the resolution is good enough to show some of Adrien's vascular development. From his expression I suspect he rather liked doing this. A masterpiece and, as usual to do...but probably not as well..

    1. Thanks for sharing your perspective on this, David!
