Meditation (The Inner Voice) 1896, Auguste Rodin, Paris

One version of this sculpture exists in Gallery Meštrović, Split that I posted last August (https://ivanawingham.com/2015/08/16/inner-voice-by-rodin-and-psyche-by-mestrovic-at-the-gallery-mestrovic-split/). Taken from the Gates of Hell, where she was a damned, the Meditation was taken to face one of the muses in the Monument Project was Victor Hugo. To insert it in the group, Rodin deprives her of arms. Insular, the work of the peaceful face and undulating body was misunderstood by the public due to its incompleteness. For Rodin, nothing essential was missing from the sculpture. IMG_1855IMG_1863IMG_1862IMG_1856IMG_1857IMG_1859
