The Bather (Toilette de Venus), by Rodin, (1888-1889). As an artist who adored women, Rodin turned to women as his main subject of observation. He chose the postures likely to give the body the most expression, which is why his sculptures are often depicted without heads, feet or hands. The Bather is based on the kneeling Faun in the Tympanum from The Gates Of Hell Rodin created some of the most famous pieces known in the art of sculpting. His rough surface textures with deep hollows added strong shadows and naturalism to the human form. Rodin's goal, as he put it, was to render inner feelings through muscular movement. One of the preeminent European sculptors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Rodin's goal was "to render inner feelings through muscular movement."
