Museum Masterworks - America’s largest collection of classic & contemporary statuary masters
Rodin
Museum Masterworks sculptures are hand-cast and hand-finished in crushed stone resin. Centuries-old casting techniques still apply. Artisans apply the patina in a labor-intensive process that requires several layers and specialized shading. The result is a durable statue that stands up to the ravages of time.
Age of Bronze

Age of Bronze

The Age of Bronze was Rodin's first full-scale sculputral work. Originally viewed as controversial, today it is considered one of Rodin's great masterpieces. Rodin viewed his model from various angles in order to faithfully represent the human form. It conveys seriousness and emotional depth, and symbolizes "one who is passing from the unconsciousness of primitive man into the age of understanding and love."

The Kiss

The Kiss

One of the world's most recognized and appreciated artistic depictions of physical love. Rodin’s original embracing couple never really kissed – their lips did not touch. Like his Thinker, the Kiss was part of Rodin’s monumental Gates of Hell commission. The couple represents characters from Dante’s Inferno. The woman falls in love with her husband’s brother. When they are discovered, they are killed.

Eternal Springtime

Eternal Springtime

Exhibited at the Salon for the first time in 1898, Eternal Springtime was entitled Cupid and Psyche. Resting on its back, together with a figure closely related to The Fallen Caryatid Carrying Her Stone, the torso was later used in the work known as Illusions Received by the Earth. Like many of Rodin’s works, Eternal Springtime is the result of the grouping of figures at least one of which was already in existence. It was a plaster of this version, now in the Rodin Museum, the Rodin gave to Robert Louis Stevenson in 1885. The demand for this work soon became very great and a number of marble replicas were made.

Adam

Adam

The influence of Michaelangelo can be seen in this work. Adam has been well described as "powerful but immobilized being," in this embodiment of the story of Genesis.

Eve

Eve

According to Walker Art Center curators, "The graceful, athletic Italian woman he (Rodin) used as his model for 'Eve,' the mother of all humanity, added an unexpected naturalism to the sculpture, as she was pregnant."
