François-Auguste-René Rodin (12 November 1840 – 17 November 1917) bronze head Between 1891 and 1898, Rodin created numerous partial and full-figure studies for his large-scale monument honoring the great nineteenth-century writer Honoré de Balzac. This small-scale head is close to the version used in the final monument, a study of which stands nearby in this gallery. With its dramatic shock of hair, expressive features and deep-set eyes, it is as much a portrait of genius and creativity as an individual likeness. In Rodin's own words: "I had to show Balzac in his study, breathless, hair in disorder, eyes lost in a dream, a genius who in his little room reconstructs piece by piece all of society in order to bring it into tumultuous life before his contemporaries and generations to come."
