Study for Obsession

Auguste Rodin French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 800

Among the most telling of the gifts Rodin made to The Met in acknowledgment of the Museum’s acquisition of his sculptures, this study of a nude woman, rendered almost abstract by enclosure, announces the impenetrable mystery of the female form that so obsessed Rodin.
