Adrien Hébert

Nude

c. 1923
The nude, a popular motif in 19th-century Western art, saw a resurgence in Canada in the 1920s. In his early career, after a short time in France in 1922–23, Hébert developed an interest in painting nudes. Stylistically, he chose a Post-Impressionistic approach similar to that of Edwin Holgate, and placed his figures indoors, showing a more academic interest.
