This is a bronze replica of Auguste Rodin's 'Adam' sculpture. In 1880, Rodin proposed to Turquet, the Undersecretary for Fine Arts, to flank his 'Gates of Hell' by two colossal statues: Adam and Eve, the first sinners. The Gates of Hell is a monumental sculptural group that depicts a scene from "The Inferno", the first section of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy written in the early 14th century. He had visited the two most famous versions of this subject: Masaccio's 'Adam and Eve' in Santa Maria Novella, Florence, and the Sistine Chapel in Rome with Michelangelo's frescos , featuring Adam reaching his hand out to God as the central scene. But being dissatisfied with his first outline of 'Adam', because he thought it too close to Michelangelo's style, he destroyed this first version. Rodin made Adam look down instead of facing his Father-Creator. We understand this downward look as an expression of shame and guilt expressingthe shame and remorse after the Fall to sin. He is posed in a contrapposto but unnatural pose as though the feeling of remorse writhes his body. He was captures using the age-old method of lost wax casting and finished with brown patina stain. Adam is mounted upon a black marble base with the European Bronze Finery stamp of quality and the artist Rodin's signature. François-Auguste-René Rodin (12 November 1840 ? 17 November 1917), known as Auguste Rodin was a French sculptor. Although Rodin is generally considered the progenitor of modern sculpture, he did not set out to rebel against the past. He was schooled traditionally, took a craftsman-like approach to his work, and desired academic recognition,although he was never accepted into Paris's foremost school of art. From the unexpected realism of his first major figure?inspired by his 1875 trip to Italy?to the unconventional memorials whose commissions he later sought, Rodin's reputation grew, such that he became the preeminent French sculptor of his time. By 1900, he was a world-renowned artist.
