EVE (1895) Bronze Statue Sculpture by Auguste Rodin Nude Female Figure 32" x 11"
Total Dimensions: Height 32'' x Width 11'' Approximate Weight: 43 LBS Original Reproduction: ReproductionAlong with this beauty is a deep seriousness of intent. Subjects are never trifling. The body is for him a medium of expression to convey ancient and weighty themes of life and death, action and repose, alienation and reconciliation. Figures are not abstracted — as later artists like Picasso or Giacometti would do — but literally pared down. The “Large Torso of the Falling Man” (1904) lacks arms, legs, head, and neck, as if to test how much expression he could wring from how little of the body, in the process both referencing and one-upping the power and fragmentation of the famous classical “Torso Belvedere.” Within his expressive vocabulary, Rodin uses the male and female body very differently. Looking at Rodin’s work in comparison with David’s “Oath of the Horatii” (1784) — a foundational image in the French Academy — we can see that his male figures have evolved from pugilistic sword-wielding clones into thoughtful, even poetic individuals (“Age of Bronze,” 1877; “Thinker”) but his women continue to signify through sensuality and pathos. His main innovation is to heighten the reality of their sexuality. In some sculptures, he replaces the smooth pubic triangle that has served as the cipher for female genitals in Western art since the Ancient Greeks with a lifelike pudenda that sometimes even winks open at the viewer, as in “Iris, Messenger of the Gods” (c. 1895).
I really like this painting/sculpture. Perfect for the spot I envisioned it for. Good size, tricky to hang but we always have problems hanging our pictures. It is all metal which is fine with me. Beautiful colors, warm, reminding me od Fall my favorite season. The ballerina looks on the picture as if she was pinkish but the color changes depending on the light it can be beige or slightly pinkish. Very pretty.
Exquisitely made, facial and hair details impressive, a very nice addition to my Indian collection, overall a great buy. This is my second Indian Bust from this company. I have 10 total bronze bust
The sculpture is gorgeous. Great service. Great quality and service.
The piece is very lovely, I'm very happy I got it.
We love it.
I purchased this because I thought it looked like my gf. I’m very pleased with the erotic statue and the company I purchased it from.
When I first saw this one, I knew I had to have it. It's even nicer looking in person.
Great work of sexual art. Well done.
I believe I have purchased 4 western themed bronzes over the years from Bronzhaus . Everyone is an absolute masterpiece!
Bronzhaus has an amazing array of bronzes to choose from so whatever theme appeals to you they will certainly have the perfect one for you.
The website makes viewing their selections very easy from every conceivable angle. The staff is courteous and professional and each bronze is carefully packaged so it arrives safely on time.
On top that, you won’t find a better value anywhere.
This is a superbly crafted bronze bust of Lincoln. Supply internationally was also lightning fast. Thank you, Bronzhaus.
What material are your sculptures made out of?
All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!
What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?
Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold. Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood. Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.
Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.
Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
