Description:
Description: Watercolour on paper sketch; entitled 'nude' on verso with gallery label, "Curt Valentin Gallery'; 10 x 8 inch (25.4 x 20.32 cm). Known as one of the most gifted figurative sculptors in history, Auguste Rodin made such iconic works of art as The Kiss (1880-1881), The Thinker (1881-1882), and The Burghers of Calais (1884-1895). Using clay, plaster molds, and a meticulous process that included live models, Rodin created sculptures that were innovative in their attention to detail and unprecedented realism. Inspired by the female form and literature from Dante to Baudelaire, Rodin was particularly adept at conveying tension and emotion through subjects\’ bodies and made a large collection of sculptures of men and women in amorous, sensual poses. PROVENANCE: Upper New York Estate

II,illustration of other casts pp. 584-94 Auguste Rodin\’s Le Penseur is one of the most recognizable sculptures in all of art history. Rodin first conceived of this image to crown the tympanum of his monumental La Porte de l'enfer(TheGates of Hell). The figure represented Dante, surrounded by the characters of his famed work The Divine Comedy, though it soon took on an independent life. \“Thin and ascetic in his straight gown,\’ Rodin wrote later, \‘my Dante would have been meaningless once divorced from the overall work. Guided by my initial inspiration, I conceived another \‘thinker\’, a nude, crouching on a rock, his feet tense. Fists tucked under his chin, he muses. Fertile thoughts grow slowly in his mind. He is no longer a dreamer. He is a creator\” (quoted in R. Masson & V. Mattiussi,Rodin, Paris, 2004, p. 38). Transcending Dante's narrative,Le Penseurbecame a universal symbol of reflection and creative genius. From at least 1888, when the larger version of the sculpture was first exhibited in Copenhagen, Rodin consideredLe Penseurto be an autonomous composition. The following year it was shown in Paris, with the original titleDanterevised to readLe Penseur: le poète. The work's effect on viewers and critics was immediate and potent, allowing it to transcend the larger scheme ofLa Porte de l'enfer. Artists such as Edward Steichen and Edvard Munch worked through a hypnotic attachment to the model. Writer and critic Gabriel Mourey wrote of the work in 1906: "he is no longer the poet suspended over the pit of sin and expiation; he is our brother in suffering, curiosity, contemplation, joy, the bitter joy of searching and knowing. He is no longer a superhuman, a predestined human being; he is simply a man for all ages, for all latitudes" (G. Mourey, "Le Penseurde Rodin offert par souscription publique au peuple de Paris" inLes Arts de la vie, vol. 1, no. 5, May 1904, p. 268). Le Penseur, Petit modèle has distinguished provenance. This sculpture was acquired by Mr. & Mrs. Ralph T. King of Cleveland in the early twentieth century. A notable business man, Ralph King held the largest portion of downtown real estate in Cleveland at the turn of the century. He and his wife, Fanny Tewksbury King, were instrumental in the development of the Cleveland Museum of Art. They donated over eight-hundred works to the Museum, founded the Museum's Print Department and served on its Board of Trustees and Advisory Council.Two of their most notable donations to the Museum were works by Rodin - an example ofL'Age d'airainand a monumental cast of Le Penseur, both acquired directly from the artist. In 1970,Le Penseur, which adorns the steps of the Museum, was damaged by a bomb, the evidence of which is visible in the lower portion of the figure which still adorns this grand staircase.The present work remained as a cherished part of their personal collection.
