About Young Mother with Child Sculpture
We don’t know exactely when this Rodin’s artwork was modeled. Young Mother and Child plaster were shown at the Salon the same year under the title Woman and Love. This touching sculpture of a nude mother seated on a rock being gently nuzzled by her young child is a beautiful and eternal statement about motherhood. She calmly reflects on the spiritual connection between herself and her son or daughter. Whether used to represent maternal love or a mythological theme, the association of the baby and the young woman was both sentimental and sensual. Several bronze and marble versions of the statue were made during Rodin “lifetime. The woman and child theme was very present in artist “oeuvre at this time. Rodin’s artwork replica comes in a protected packaging with an interesting biography of the artist.

About Rodin’s artwork
Rodin’s career has been marked by the mixed reactions his work provoked with the audience. The lack of understanding for Rodin “work was partly due to the original character of his art. He felt little for the strict formats of Romanticism and neither did he want to identify himself with the neutrality of the Impressionists.
Rodin’s artwork is characterized by a passion for the human body and he considered himself incapable of any creativity if he did not have a living model in front of him. “˜In everything I follow nature and I never pretend I am able to control her. My only ambition is to be subservient and faithful to her’, he said.
