Although almost nothing is known about Juste de Juste, he was probably among a circle of artists working at Fontainebleau in France in the 1540s. This eccentric composition seems to reference the twisting, turning, and balancing bodies found on the Sistine Chapel ceiling as well as the muscular nude body types associated with Michelangelo. However, the composition itself is a unique invention not derived from any specific part of the ceiling or indeed from life studies.
