Also known as Zéphyr et la terre and Cupidon et Psyché, Rodin’s L'Éternel printemps was exhibited at the Salon of 1897 and has become one of his best-known works. It was conceived during an intense period of creativity while Rodin was mapping out La Porte de l’enfer, and like its twin, Le Baiser, also recalls Dante’s story of Paolo and Francesca who were condemned to spend eternity locked in passionate embrace. The carnality of the model marks a shift from his earlier classical and allegorical depictions of love to more sensual representations and daring poses.

"No one could make bodies ‘speak’ better than Rodin" writes Norman-Romain. "At the peak of his powers, aided by the youth and openness of the models who posed for him, he conveyed his own euphoria in [Eternal Springtime] with a very skillful composition, built on an X, whose elegant forms, enhanced by the languidness of the bodies and the delicacy of the embrace, made it one of his most highly acclaimed works" (Antoinette Le Normand-Romain, The Bronzes of Rodin, Catalogue of Works in the Musée Rodin, vol. I, Paris, 2007, p. 335).
