Weight 1,9 kg

"The Thinker" is one of the most renowned sculptures by French artist Auguste Rodin, and it stands as one of the most recognizable pieces of art in the world. It depicts a seated male figure deep in thought. Here are some key aspects of the history, design, and legacy of this extraordinary piece of art:

Origins: "The Thinker" was originally conceived as part of a larger work called "The Gates of Hell" (La Porte de l'Enfer). Inspired by Dante's "Divine Comedy," Rodin began working on this monumental portal project in 1880, which ultimately remained unfinished. "The Thinker" was initially intended to represent Dante himself, contemplating his verses.

Design: The sculpture presents a powerful, nude male figure immersed in contemplation. He is seated upon a rock with his chin resting on one hand, while the other hand is relaxed upon his knee. The pose is meant to portray intense mental effort and exudes a powerful yet melancholic aura.

Versions: Although the original version was part of "The Gates of Hell," Rodin decided to create a standalone version on a larger scale. This was completed in 1904. Additionally, there are several casts of "The Thinker" in plaster, bronze, and other materials located around the world, made both by Rodin himself and posthumously.

Symbolism: "The Thinker" has achieved extensive cultural significance. The figure has become an emblem of philosophical thought and human reason. Furthermore, it generally represents the depth of the human spirit and the complexity of the intellect.

Influence and Legacy: "The Thinker" is one of Rodin's most prominent works and has had a significant influence on the art world. The sculpture is a prime example of Rodin's ability to infuse emotional depth and realism into his work, marking him as a pioneer of modern sculpture.

Museums and Exhibitions: Originals and casts of "The Thinker" can be seen in many significant museums and collections worldwide, including the Musée Rodin in Paris, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, and many others.

"The Thinker" remains a timeless masterpiece that continues to fascinate people and inspire discussions about art, philosophy, and the human experience.

As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The great sculptor François-Auguste-René Rodin was born in Paris, France in 1840. Auguste Rodin studied at the École des Arts décoratifs and he fully dedicated his life to the art. He travelled to Rome and Florence, searching for the secrets of Michelangelo. He went back to France and kept on studying. In 1900 several pieces of his work were shown at the world exhibition in Paris. Many awards and honorary titles were given to Rodin. Rodin was known as the pioneer of modern sculpture. Therefore it is unbelievable that François-Auguste-René Rodin never attended the Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris, the best school of arts in Paris, but he attended the École des Arts Décoratifs until 1862. The sculpture "The Thinker" is known as a sculpture or a part of his famous "Gates of Hell". This portal was supposed to be the entrance of the new Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which was never build. Auguste Rodin is one of the best known French sculptors. He died on November 17, 1917 in Meudon, France.
