About Study for The Secret Clasping Hands Statue - Rodin - Small

This Study for The Secret Clasping Hands Statue is inspired by the great: Auguste Rodin.  Considered to be one of the greatest sculptors of all time, Auguste Rodin's artworks are characterized by his deft modeling of the human form in a semi-impressionistic, semi-realistic image. In this sculptural study of two hands preparing to clasp, Rodin has taken interest in the shape formed by these two hands creating a "Cathedral" or pitched roof line. It is structural and physical as well as spiritual and transcendent. Reproduced after an original from the late 19th century, Rodin enchants us with the magical anticipation of these two hands about to clasp.

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.
