In his later work, Henri Laurens increasingly looked to the classical poses of 19th century academic sculpture as inspiration. Works such as La Petite lune combine the pose of a traditional odalisque with a relaxed Cubist style, articulating the volumes and space of a Cubist nude through curving forms. The austere precision demanded by Laurens' early Cubist style was abandoned in the s as. Henri Laurens began his career creating wood and polychrome plaster sculptures, drawing on the tenets of Cubism and adopting such typically Cubist subjects as dissected human figures, guitars, and still lifes. For instance, Clown (), which drew on Pablo Picassos ’s assemblages, consists of juxtaposed spheres, cones, and : Henri Laurens.

Laurens, in fact, described Cycladic sculpture as leading "nowhere" and yet containing "everything". The artist softened the complexity of Cubist fractured planes, reducing his representation to a few simple geometric shapes and an interplay between the curved forms of the base and oval shape of the head, and the sharp, triangular planes which. Laurens illustrated numerous texts and books of poetry. His illustrations, including woodcuts of reclining nudes, carried the influence of Henri Matisse's "cut-outs" and Pablo Picasso's continuous line drawings, but his "liquid" curvilinear bodies owed just as much to the Surrealist technique of automatic drawing and the curved planes of Joan Miró and Hans ality: French.
