The sculpture depicts Eve after the Fall, her head bowed in shame and her arms covering her breasts. This life size plaster cast of Eve was donated to the museum following a Rodin exhibition in Rotterdam in 1899. It was the first work of Rodin's in a Dutch collection. As a result of the donation Rodin visited the Museum Boijmans.
Carolynn Camden asked
Is the Rodin sculpture, Eve after the Fall still part of the collection of the museum?
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered
Dear Carolynn, Yes, the sculpture is still in the collection of the museum! The sculpture is on view next to the so-called ‘Old Dutch’ staircase. More information on the sculpture and its whereabouts can be found at the object page under 'specifications'. See: http://collectie.boijmans.nl/en/object/40552. Kind regards, Tanja
