RR Autograph Auctions Auguste Rodin Signed portrait of Rodin’s Madame Fenaille

RR Autograph Auctions Auguste Rodin

Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 postcard photo of a Rodin marble sculpture of Madame Fenaille, signed in full in black ink, “Auguste Rodin.” Photo is captioned at the bottom “Musée du Luxembourg – Auguste Rodin / Buste de Madame F*** – ND Phot.” Moderate silvering to edges and dark background, otherwise fine condition. Twenty-one versions of Rodin’s portrait of Mme Marie Fenaille, in which the sculptor varied the facial expressions and positions, were created: three terra-cotta, 13 plaster, one stone, and four marble. The one depicted on the postcard here offered was sculpted in marble and was acquired by the Musée du Luxembourg in 1908. Any signed photo of Rodin’s work is quite rare. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
