Art History

Auguste Rodin

Sculptor Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) received his first commission from the French government in 1880, for a monumental portal covered with sculptural relief for a museum planned in Paris. Rodin proposed The Gates of Hell, a vast composition based loosely on Dante’s Divine Comedy, but the work remained unfinished and was never cast in bronze during the sculptor’s lifetime. A sketchbook in the Musée Rodin in Paris contains a study for The Gates flanked by standing figures. The two figures were not original to Rodin’s plan, but they survive in the larger-than-life-size Adam and Eve. Their meaning is evident from their original context, seen here in the dejected Eve figure, the source of mankind’s fall from grace.

 

Description

The Museum’s Eve was cast in bronze in 1910 from Auguste Rodin’s (French, 1840–1917) original 1881 model. Based on this work, our reduced-scale reproduction was created with a combination of three- dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques. Bonded bronze. Hand patinated. 13 1/4”H x 4”W x 4 3/4”D. Sorry, gift wrap is not available for this item.
