Sculpture/Figure. Une Damnée. Rodin, Auguste (French, 1840-1917), Paris, Colmar. Bronze, cast, with dark brown patina. The woman lies on her back with her legs drawn up, her left arm extended to the side, and her right arm across her body with the hand touching her left side. Her head is tilted back and her mouth is wide open. The figure is attached by means of a screw to a rectangular wooden base with a black and brown striped painted surface. Notes: Conceived c. 1884-85 as a study for a figure on the viewer's right side of the Tympanum of The Gates of Hell. Date of cast uncertain, probably 1964-69, when twelve casts were made by Georges Rudier.
