Hand of Rodin Holding a Torso
Auguste Rodin, French, 1840 - 1917. Cast by Paul Cruet, French, 1880 - 1966.
In the weeks leading up to Rodin’s death in November 1917, his assistant Paul Cruet made a cast of the artist’s right hand and inserted Small Torso A, one of many plaster fragments crowding Rodin’s studio. This composite work combines a cast made from life with an original work of art.
