The torso sculpture is delicately cradled in a seated position by the immense right hand of Rodin, which was skillfully crafted by one of his assistants, Paul Cruet, a few weeks prior to the sculptor's passing in November 1917. The creation of this composite artwork was initiated, as noted by Judith Cladel, at the request of Monsieur Benedite, although the original idea behind its conception remains unknown. While it is debated among scholars whether the concept originated from Rodin himself, the Hand of Rodin undeniably embodies the spirit and artistic essence of the master sculptor. Its conceptual similarity to Rodin's renowned works, such as The Hand of God or The Hand of Devil holding Woman, is strikingly evident. This composite masterpiece captures the harmonious interplay between the torso and the powerful hand, evoking a sense of profound contemplation and emotion. The craftsmanship behind the sculpture is a testament to Rodin's artistic legacy, ensuring its place within the realm of his remarkable oeuvre. The Hand of Rodin is an extraordinary tribute to the visionary sculptor and serves as a captivating addition to any art collection, enchanting viewers with its evocative beauty and the enduring influence of Rodin's artistic vision.
