When Nadelman exhibited his sculpture Seated Woman in 1919, it was accompanied by another plaster figure of a seated man wearing a bowler hat. While these figures may have seemed like caricatures, for Nadelman they were a means of keeping alive age-old multifarious traditions of representing the human form. In an interview that year, Nadelman explained: “We have all been accustomed, in sculpture shows, to seeing figures of women represented nude, and portraits of men fully clothed, even to realistic buttons on their coats and creases in their trousers. For reasons of my own . . . I show the ladies dressed as we always see them, and the men with their hats on.” This preparatory drawings for Seated Woman sheds light on artist’s process.
