DOOR - Auguste Rodin - Gates of Hell, bronze cast after 1925.

DOOR - Auguste Rodin - Gates of Hell, bronze cast after 1925. In 1888, the State commissioned Rodin to design monumental doors for the entrance to the museum. They were to be decorated with eleven low reliefs representing Dante's Divine Comedy. Rodin took his inspiration from the famous doors that Ghiberti had made for the baptistery in Florence in the fifteenth century. Three years later, he was satisfied with his initial model, but the plans for the museum were abandoned.RaeJ
