About The Age of Bronze statue

The Age of Bronze is a reproduction in small scale of Rodin's first life-sized sculpture. He cast and created the sculpture in Belgium where it was first exhibited. Rodin modeled the piece right after returning from a trip to Florence where he had admired the masters of Renaissance Sculpture. Throughout his life he considered himself incapable of any creativity if he did not observe living models to strive for the perfect representation of the human body. Regarding The Age of Bronze life-sized statue, the result was so perfect that Rodin was accused of having used a life cast to make it. The high-end reproduction of The Age of Bronze statue comes in safe packaging with Rodin's biography and a description card.

Auguste Rodin was a French sculptor who exhibited a unique talent to capture the extreme depths of human emotion. Although he didn't study at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he found inspiration in sculptural traditions. A majority of his criticism was due to his departure from highly decorative and thematic traditions. He preferred forms that were true to nature and took Michelangelo and Da Vinci as prime influences. Despite the controversy that surrounded his art, he refused to change his style, sticking to his vision until the end of his days. His most famous piece of Art, The Thinker, was originally part of a larger vision. Along with The Kiss and Gates of Hell, Rodin tried to encapsulate Dante’s Inferno in bronze. Eventually, the sculptor earned fame thanks to his unexpected realism and use of unconventional materials. Throughout his later life, he remains one of the greatest artists of his era.
