Triton and Nereid
Guitar Solo: YOJI ITO. D

* Triton and Nereid
ca. 1886–93
-François Auguste René Rodin (1840-1917)

This terracotta sketch of sensuously entwined sea deities reveals Rodin’s direct engagement with the subject of the female nude. The figure of Triton—caressing the Nereid’s voluptuously modeled torso—embodies the spirit of Rodin’s desire and veneration for the female body. The Met commissioned an over-life-size marble version of this work, but Rodin never completed it.

* Torso (A Study for Ariane without Arms)
ca. 1900–1905
-François Auguste René Rodin (1840-1917)

In the 1880s, Rodin began to break apart his sculptural studies and treat the fragments as independent works of art. He may have displayed this terracotta torso on its small wooden base in his studio until 1912, when he donated it to The Met. The scarred torso recalls the "noble vestiges" of the Parthenon that Rodin admired in the British Museum during his London sojourns.

Underworld

* Orpheus and Eurydice modeled
ca. 1887, carved 1893
-François Auguste René Rodin (1840-1917)

The mythical poet Orpheus braved the underworld to rescue his dead wife, Eurydice. The gods allowed her ghost to follow him and regain life, provided that Orpheus did not look at her until both had reached the sunlit earth. Rodin depicts Eurydice’s spirit floating in the underworld’s dark entrance while Orpheus hesitates at the threshold. Because he cannot feel her phantom embrace, or hear her spectral voice, Orpheus turns to see if his beloved has come. An instant later he will glimpse her, and Eurydice will vanish. This exquisitely carved sculpture, one of the first Rodin works to come to America, is the only marble example of the composition.
