Description "Phryne Before the Judges" by Albert Walter Wein

Group/male/female/nude/myth

"Phryne stands insolently revealed, a cloak just stripped from her and held by the young man standing behind her. Her hands are raised to her shoulders as she releases it, and her head is turned sidewise. She holds her ripe form proudly erect, the firm muscles strongly modeled. The man is squarely braced on feet spread far apart; on his back the muscles have been conventionalized in a formal pattern after the manner of archaic sculpture. The features are sharply drawn, accented by strong lines and heavy ridges. The artist has given this work architectural solidity by the straight fall of the cloak and the man's arms raised at right angles in a horizontal line." (Proske 510)
