Art History

The lively modeling and deceptively realistic appearance of The Bronze Age represented such a departure from the conventions of nineteenth-century academic sculpture that Auguste Rodin (French, 1840 1917) was accused of casting from a live model. However, Rodin preserved photographs of the human model on which the sculpture is based. The man is shown nude, with his left hand grasping a pole, and it is immediately apparent from the photo that the sculpture was not cast from the body of a man. In this work, Rodin not only abandoned the repertory of symbols of academic sculpture but also stripped the figure of the spear, relying on the expressiveness of the figure itself to convey its meaning.
