相關資料

The group of Bacchantes enlacées is an example of an assemblage technique that was typical of Rodin’s creative process. This proof is one of the very first copies of this composition which Rodin initially made in plaster to give to close friends and his supporters from artistic, journalistic and political circles.
This proof is a moving testimony to the aesthetic struggles and scandals that surrounded Rodin at the time. Rodin dedicated this copy to the journalist Gaston Steigler, who in his article “Rodin et Balzac”, published in the newspaper L’Echo de Paris on 12 November 1894, defended the sculptor with regard to the famous controversy caused by his plan to create a Monument to Balzac for the French writers’ association La Société des Gens de Lettres.   
Underscoring the importance that Bacchantes enlacées held for the artist, Rodin went on to donate other plaster copies dedicated to close friends and influential figures such as Claude Monet (whose proof is now included in the Musée Marmottan collection, Paris), Paul César Helleu (whose proof is in the Musée Rodin collection, Paris), and Georges Clémenceau (whose proof is in the Musée Clémenceau, Paris).
