La Danaide (1885), sign. Auguste Rodin
12"Wide x 8"Deep x 7"High

The bronze sculpture "La Danaide" was created in 1885 by Auguste Rodin. It is originated in a time when Rodin has elevated the nude of resting women to a cardinal theme of his artistic work. Rodin originally designed the sculpture for his famous work "The Gates of Hell". In Greek mythology Danaide is one of the fifty daughters of the king of Libya, Danaus. In the most common version, she had to kill her husband on their wedding night by order of her father, and is condemned to spend eternity carrying water in a sieve or perforated device. Similar to Sisyphus she comes to represent the futility of a repetitive task that can never be completed. Her curvaceous and sensual attitude cast a spell over the viewer. The figure is signed with A. Rodin.
