Art History

Sculptor Auguste Rodin (French, 18401917) 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 Dantes Divine Comedy, but the work remained unfinished and was never cast in bronze during the sculptors lifetime. A sketchbook in the Muse Rodin in Paris contains a study for The Gates flanked by standing figures. The two figures were not original to Rodins 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 mankinds fall from grace.
