    Nero, or, as it is titled in French on the lower right side of the drawing, Néron, is one of Rodin's rapid sketches that show the results of later reworking. It has been discovered that this figure was originally that of a woman. The bold outline of the final version has been drawn in pencil over washes of watercolor and gouache.
