"The Model," which also goes by the title "My Model," belongs to the period of HAP Grieshaber's greatest fame. As a politically ambitious contemporary critic, he had denounced the political conditions in Greece, South America and also in Germany, but with this emphatically intimate nude he created a sensual-aesthetic masterpiece. The female body is conceived entirely from the surface, seeks even with the rhythmically curved curves to the locks of hair a near decoratively simplified composition, which achieves in the colorful interplay of human figure and the striped background exciting balance.
