    Femme Nue aux Bras Levés Posant sur un Socle
    Auguste Rodin
    (French, 1840-1917)
    Dedicated and signed lower right: homage à / madame et Monsieur mon/collègue Walther/amitié/A.Rodin
    Graphite on wove paper
    Dimensions: 12 5/8 x 9 1/4" (32x23.4 cm)
     
    Conceived and drawn circa 1905-1906
    This drawing of a Naked Woman Raising her Hands above her Face while Standing on a Socle was produced by Rodin in the first years of the 20th century. This is evident if one inspects the drawing’s genesis, as well as its dedication to Rodin’s ‘colleague’ Walther on the bottom right of the paper.
     
    From a technical point of view, many drawings produced by Rodin at this period were first quickly sketched in pencil observing a live model in the studio. These subjects were then reworked later by the artist, who simplified their contours in order to achieve compositional harmony and simplicity. In this light, drawing D1500 (ca 1900) in the collection of the Musée Rodin was likely the sketch from which the present work derived, showing a woman in the same pose standing on a socle.
     
    While the dedication does not spell Walther’s name in full, it is likely that this was given by the artist to Johannes Walther and his wife in circa 1900. Walther was an eminent professor of geology at the University of Jena. In 1905, Rodin was given a honorary doctorate from this institution, reciprocating the honour by donating his Bust of Minerva to the University. By referring to Walther as his ‘colleague,’ Rodin thus underlined his newly-acquired status of artist laureate. Dedicated drawings such as this one are of rare historical interest, constituting a visual reference to Rodin’s social networks.
