Auguste Rodin

Eve

Originally created in association with his famed Gates of Hell for the never completed museum of decorative arts in Paris, Eve became one of Auguste Rodin’s most celebrated descriptions of the female figure. Standing awkwardly in an attempt to cover her body, the figure distorts the classical “controposto” or “weight-shift” position. The artist has forsaken the traditional smooth surfaces and rounded contours apparent in figurative sculpture since the Renaissance, in favor of something highly textured and emotive. This is one of 12 known full-scales casts of Eve.
Auguste Rodin. Eve, 1881 (cast before 1920). Bronze, 68.5 x 19 x 22.5 inches. Gift of Fred and Lena Meijer
