Catalogue Note

Dated circa 1890-95, the present work is part of a series of drawings executed by Auguste Rodin which he named de transition. Relating to several works in the collection of the Musée Rodin, the figure's garment is simplified to a geometric and minimal sack-like form. During this decade, Rodin used laid letter paper, often English in origin, which was sold pre-folded; Rodin would cut the paper at the fold and only use half of the leaf.
