Step into the world of renowned sculptor Auguste Rodin with this stunning bronze reproduction of his masterpiece, “Eve.” Originally commissioned by the French state for the Musée du Luxembourg in 1911 and later transferred to the Musée Rodin in 1918, this sculpture embodies the artist’s genius and timeless vision.

Originally designed as part of “The Gates of Hell” project dating from 1881, Rodin envisioned “Eve” as one of the figures to flank the monumental gates. The story behind this particular sculpture is as intriguing as the work itself. Rodin began modeling a large female figure but had to pause when his pregnant model could no longer pose. It wasn’t until 1899 that he exhibited this unfinished masterpiece, showcasing his willingness to present works in a fragmentary state. The rough surface, the absence of intricate details, and the visible metal armature on the right foot all attest to the piece’s ongoing evolution.

In contrast, Rodin completed a smaller version of “Eve” in 1882, which was met with widespread acclaim. This larger bronze replica faithfully captures the sensuality of her body while emphasizing the modesty conveyed by her lowered head and crossed arms. The sculpture’s smooth surface and exquisite detailing are a testament to Rodin’s mastery of his craft. Crafted entirely by hand and cast in 100% bronze, this masterpiece stands atop a luxurious marble base. It bears Rodin’s signature, making it a remarkable tribute to the artist’s enduring legacy. Whether displayed in your home, office, or gallery, “Eve” will transport you to the heart of Rodin’s artistic brilliance and captivate all who encounter it.
