RODIN, Auguste (1840 - 1917)

Pen Victor Hugo (1802-1885)

Cyfrwng: efydd

Maint: 51.4 cm

Derbyniwyd: 1934; Rhodd; Syr William Goscombe John

Rhif Derbynoli: NMW A 304

Nid oedd Victor Hugo yn fodlon eistedd yn llonydd ar gyfer portread ohono, felly roedd rhaid i Rodin weithio o frasluniau cyflym. Yn ôl yr artist, 'meddyliais i mi weld Iau Ffrengig; ond ar ôl dod i’w adnabod yn well, roedd yn debycach i Hercules'. Mae’r penddelw yn cyfleu statws urddasol yr awdur o fri ac arwr cenedlaethol y Ffrancwyr, a ysgrifennodd glasuron fel Les Miserables a Notre-Dame de Paris. Disgrifiodd Syr Goscombe John ef fel 'tua'r gorau ganddo o'r math hwnnw ac yn enwog ar hyd a lled y byd. Mae'n waith arbennig o onest'.

back in 2012 we had looked into this but didnt pursue further, we have in our posession a plaster merkat of this exact model which we accuired from a bronze founders estate in the 1980s who had been familiy friends from the 1950s, the bronze founder has a direct link to Sir William Goscombe John and as your model does not have the typical Rodin "Rudier" foundry marks we cant help but feel that our merkat has some linkage the your item gifted by Goscombe john in the 1930s. If you think this is something worth looking into further I have attached my email and would love to send the full information/story on to one of your specialists to see if its worth looking into more

Hi there,

Our online shop stocks many items inspired by the collection, as well as a 'print on demand' service. However we don't offer a copy of this particular work for purchase, I'm afraid.
