Danaid Sculpture By Rodin can be found at the Rodin Museum, Paris, 1889 A.D. Rodin intended La Danaide to be a panel in his massive work entitled The Gates of Hell, a depiction of those that were condemned to eternal damnation. The Danaide was executed during a period when Rodin was exploring the female nude in recumbent postures. Rodin has been appreciated for decades as one of the pre-eminent Realist sculptors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth-century. Rodin's goal, as he put it, was to render inner feelings through muscular movement. This reproduction of the Danaide will be a perfect gift for the Rodin collector.
