Made in Brussels, this figure, one of Rodin’s most famous works, attests to the sculptor’s masterly skill and his attention to living nature that informs the pose and the modelling. A young Belgian soldier, Auguste Ney,was the model for this statue devoid of any element that would shed light on the subject’s identity. The untitled work was exhibited at the Cercle Artistique, Brussels, in 1877, then, entitled The Age of Bronze, at the Salon in Paris, where it caused a scandal. Also known as The Awakening Man or The Vanquished One, the statue recalls one of the early ages of mankind.

Rodin experienced unusual modernist assemblages of bronze mounted in naturalistic wood rocks and even rough stones which announce Brancusi experiments. Following our previous post about the bronze cast of the Crouching Woman offered by Rodin to Camille Claudel, this plaster is Camille’s answer to Rodin’s anguish and nervous figure. Rodin’s is not human, almost animal when Camille’s is rounder, softer and based on her own experience as a woman. Both are dramatic and admirable.
Rodin worked as Carrier-Belleuse' chief assistant until 1870, designing roof decorations and staircase and doorway embellishments. In Brussels, Rodin created his first full-scale work, The Age of Bronze, having returned from Italy. With the arrival of the Franco-Prussian War, Rodin was called to serve in the French National Guard, but his service was brief due to his near-sightedness. Decorators' work had dwindled because of the war, yet Rodin needed to support his family, as poverty was a continual difficulty for him until about the age of 30. Carrier-Belleuse soon asked.
