Artist's Description

The Three Shades (Les Trois Ombres) is a sculptural group produced in plaster by Auguste Rodin in 1886 for his The Gates of Hell. He made several individual studies for the Shades before finally deciding to put them together as three identical figures gathered around a central point. The heads hang lower than it would be possible for them to do in reality, meaning that the neck and shoulders form an almost-horizontal plane. They were to be places above the gates looking down on the viewer.

It was later cast in bronze in several editions, with such casts now in the Musée Rodin in Paris1, the Cantor Sculpture Garden at Stanford University, in the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia and the Museo Soumaya in Mexico . An autograph plaster copy dating to 1917 is also in the Musée d’arts de Nantes.
