The history of the Thinker by Rodin
As we have stated earlier, this is one of the most recognisable artworks of this great french sculptor. A piece designed to form a part of the entrance to the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris and based on the Divine Comedy by the famous poet Dante Alighieri. The museum has never been created and The Thinker turned out to be an individual piece of a great artistic value.
The Thinker was a central figure for a group of sculptures that were to represent. Represent a man supporting the weight of his head, from the chin by his hand, with an expression visibly affected by all that is happening in front of his eyes, which in completed group was to be a relieves of fights at the gates of hell. Similarily, the figure of the thinker is greatly affected by the three shadows hanging over his head, which were to be other pieces from the group and represented the divine forces brining news of coming dooms.
Doubtlessly, his most renown work, The thinker is a piece capable to depicting each and every of the characteristics of Auguste Rodin. Transversing totally the literal sense which has in its origin and acquiring a much more universal which is finished in the indentification of the final destiny of a man.
To create this magnificent piece, Auguste Rodin got inspired by other existing works. Such as the grave of Lorenzo de Medici or the Moises by Michael Angel.
We can see the figure of a seated man, appearing to be bend, with a bowed head, thinking, passive, preoccupied… We can say his position seems to be casual, almost natural, but in reality the artists tried to represent more profound sentiments, and manages to do so via the solitude, his fears, his preoccupation etc.
