Rodin: Revealing Hands

Rodin: Revealing Hands

Hélène Marraud

janvier 2011
«Rodin was a relentless worker, an outstanding modeller, which is why the hand was a special instrument for him, a magnificent tool enabling him to create and give shape to matter.» In this book, Hélène Marraud explores the expressive powers that Rodin gave to hands. It is, first and foremost, a creative act. After the matter is kneaded and shaped, the subject emerges from the tips of the sculptor's fingers. Rodin: Revealing Hands also deals with the question of the gesture, the assemblages and numerous arrangements Rodin carried out around this fragment of the human body. Modelled hands, cast hands, studies of hands, hands as monuments, in plaster, bronze or marble, symbolic works such as The Cathedral and The Hand of God. All the sensitivity and inventiveness of the sculptor can be discovered on these pages.
