Whether on your refrigerator or adorning your work space, this magnet of Auguste Rodin's (French, 1840–1917) The Thinker adds an artistic touch to any metal surface.About this sculpture:
Auguste Rodin originally conceived a smaller version of this sculpture to sit atop his monumental bronze portal entitled The Gates of Hell (1880-1917). The figure was intended to represent Italian poet Dante Alighieri pondering The Divine Comedy, his epic story of Paradise and Inferno. However, in 1889 Rodin exhibited the sculpture independently of The Gates, giving it the title The Thinker, and in 1902 he embarked on this larger version.
