Description
Like "The Thinker" and many other well-known sculptures the "Crouching Woman" is based on a figure from the tympanum of the Gates of Hell, a bronze portal meant for the Musee des Arts Decoratifs which Auguste Rodin never finished. There The Crouching Woman represents -- with her caryatid-like pose, powerful and vulnerable at the same time -- one of the lost souls being judged in the Last Judgment. This reproduction is a detailed reproduction of this character from Rodin's famous sculpture, rich with the colorations and hand sculpted texture after the original. It will be a joy for the true Rodin collector! AUGUSTE RODIN (1840-1917)In between Romanticism and Impressionism this self-willed Frenchman created some of the most famous pieces known in the art of sculpting. He was very talented at conveying feeling in his compositions by emphasizing gesture. Also, his rough surface texture with deep hollows added strong shadows and naturalism to the human form. Rodin's goal, as he put it, was "to render inner feelings through muscular movement." He achieved this aim by joining his profound knowledge of anatomy and movement with special attention to the body's surfaces, saying, "The sculptor must learn to reproduce the surface, which means all that vibrates on the surface, soul, love, passion, life...Sculpture is thus the art of hollows and mounds, not of smoothness, or even polished planes."
