Hand of Rodin Holding a Torso

Cast 1917
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.
