Hand study - Auguste Rodin - Plaster patina

Auguste Rodin (1840-1917)
Aix-les-Bains, musée du Dr Faure
Rmn - GP cast from the original in bronze
Hand patinated resin production

"Small things, half-size, and he did not discard a single one... They were kept in flat drawers... He showed them to me and we took one or two which were particulary successfull, and I remember him holding a small hand in each of his, and telling me with a big smile, 'these are really good'". (Sir Gerald Kelly)
Modelled by the dozen, these hands were always agile and lively, and had a surprisingly strong expressive power, thanks to which they became autonomus. Interpreted in bronze and in marble, enlarged, invested with a symbolical dimension as in The Cathedral or The Hand of God, the series soon ended up quite naturally with a cast of the artist's hand a few weeks before his death.

For over two centuries, the craftsmen of the Rmn - GP casting studio have put their unique savoir-faire at the service of one of the largest and most prestigious collections of original moulds to reproduce the masterpieces of sculpture, from Antiquity to the present day.

Cleaning: use only a dry cloth or a feather duster - Do not expose the casting to direct or excessively bright heat

Dimensions: 5 x 13 x 7,5 cm
