Auguste Rodin and Rose Beuret
In 1864, Auguste Rodin met a seamstress named Rose Beuret. She became his lifetime companion and modeled for many of his works. The couple had a son, Auguste-Eugène Beuret (1866-1934). Rose was a lifelong stable factor in the background for Rodin. She was not part of his social life though and had to put up with a lot. She regularly modeled for Rodin as in this subtle portrait which becomes even more fascinating when you keep in mind the later role she played in Rodin’s life. Fifty-three years into their relationship, Rodin married Beuret in the last year of both their lives (1917). She died two weeks after the wedding.
