Comité Auguste Rodin

#augusterodin So happy to be able to attribute this tiny reclining figure to its real author, Jean Turcan (1846-1895), assistant of Rodin and rougher-out of the large marble Kiss.
Long attributed to Rodin with doubts as a “study for Danaïde” by scholars (Antoinette Romain-Lenormand “Rodin et le bronze”, 2007, p.558 Ill. and John Tancock “The sculpture of Auguste Rodin”, 1976, Philadelphia Museum p. 254 Ill.), this work is NOT by Rodin. Jean Turcan born in Arles made a name of his own in 1883 with the large composition “the blind man and the paralytic” rewarded by a gold medal at the Paris Salon. #comiterodin #rodinmuseum #artresearch #rodindanaid #jeanturcan #kiss #rodinthekiss #frenchsculpture #sculpturefrançaise #frenchsalon #marble #cummermuseum #artwork #bronze #arles
