About Young Mother with Child Sculpture
We don't know exactely when this Rodin's artwork was modeled. Young Mother and Child plaster were shown at the Salon the same year under the title Woman and Love. This touching sculpture of a nude mother seated on a rock being gently nuzzled by her young child is a beautiful and eternal statement about motherhood. She calmly reflects on the spiritual connection between herself and her son or daughter. Whether used to represent maternal love or a mythological theme, the association of the baby and the young woman was both sentimental and sensual. Several bronze and marble versions of the statue were made during Rodin "lifetime. The woman and child theme was very present in artist "oeuvre at this time. Rodin's artwork replica comes in a protected packaging with an interesting biography of the artist.
