La Baigneuse Drapee statue by Aristide Maillol
In this first photograph you can see the frontal view of this bronze statue, which is called La Baigneuse Drapee, or Bather draped, which was designed by the artist to represent a naked female bather, just holding her drape, or cloth, over her shoulder.
Close up of La Baigneuse Drapee statue
Here you can see a closer view of the bronze statue, which was first started to be realised by Aristide Maillol back in 1921, however, this particular sculpture was cast in 1937 and first installed within the Jardin des Tuileries in 1964, twenty years after the sculptor died in a car accident.

Now Aristide Maillol is a very famous French sculptor and an area of the Tuileries Gardens has been dedicated to him, holding twenty of his statues, and in this HD photo you can not only see the Draped Bather, but another of his sculptures in the distance.

You will find that Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol was born in the December of 1861 in Banyuls within the Roussillon region, and after several years of poverty, he eventually managed to enrol in the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, initially as a painter, yet in his later years he turned to sculpture, focusing on the female body in a classical yet stable form.
Side view of La Baigneuse Drapee statue
And in this photo of the Baigneuse Drapee you can see the side view, which also shows the hair tied back in a bun, and this is one of the characteristics that feature in many of the sculptures that Maillol produced, having his wife as a model, and later on, Dina Vierny, who became his muse for the last ten years of his life.

Yet this last image shows the opposite side of the bronze sculpture with the cloth the woman is holding, and this was taken within the Carrousel Garden as we were looking in the direction of the Musee du Louvre on the River Seine side.
