History

MAILLOL drew and engraved himself 122 woodcut illustrations for the edition of the 'Georgica' of Vergilius by Philippe Gonin in Geneva between 1937 and 1943. The book couldn't be edited because of the war and was published posthumously in 1950.
This woodcut engraving was realized separately for the subscribers.
