The Bronze Age, also known as The Vanquished, Hot Cast Classic Rodin Artwork
Condition: This sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze Dimensions with Marble Base: Height 16" x Width 7" Marble Dimensions:5" X 5" Height without base: 15" Weight : 9 LBS Inventory:87-880258078 Original or Reproduction: ReproductionThe lively modeling of the nude and its deceptively realistic appearance represented such a departure from the conventions of academic sculpture of the time that Rodin was accused of casting from a live model, a practice greatly frowned upon. Rodin preserved photographs of the human model on which the sculpture is based, a man named Auguste Neyt. He is shown nude, his clenched right hand on his head and his left hand grasping a pole. It is immediately evident that the sculpture was not cast from the body of the man. Critics of the period were also dismayed by the subject, for Rodin not only abandoned all of the elaborate repertory of symbols with which academic sculptors habitually equipped their works, but also had stripped the figure of the spear originally carried in his left hand, relying on the expressiveness of the figure itself to convey its meaning. In addition, he changed the title from The Vanquished (Le Vaincu), possibly an allusion to the suffering and demoralization of his countrymen during the Franco-Prussian War, to the classical, but more ambiguous, The Age of Bronze (L`Âge d`Airain). Later the work acquired still other new titles. The Metropolitan Museum has retained the title by which the bronze was known at the time of its purchase from Rodin.
Let customers speak for us
I ordered this Bull for my brother and it is a beauty! It is heavy and has great details!
The statue arrived with broken rod, cracked marble base. And broken rope. I was able to glue the rod and the rope. I disputed the charge with my credit card until the problem with the cracked base is resolved. Mr. Yan asserted tha he will ship a new base. So far I have not received any update. I’m not a happy customer because the statue had been damaged before it was shipped.
Staff was very helpful in my final decision. Even printed out instructions for delivery people on the box . Speedy shipping in bomb proof box . Descending the Night is magical.
Arrived quickly and extremely well pkged. SHE IS STUNNING!

Beautiful Bronze statue. Makes a great addition to my other Bronzhous Bronz collection!
Isn’t this St Jerome? The lion gives it away.
The statue looks even more vital in person. The figures seem alive in their duel as you see and even feel their movement.
Really well done ,thank you Bronzhaus
This bust occupies the central position on a shelf of Imperial German items: A pressed felt pickelhaube to one side and a M1916 Stahlhelm to the other. Frederick perfectly compliments both items. A very nicely done rendering.
Bronze and delivery perfect
Beautiful statue, excellent detail, everything I had hoped for and far price.
