Study for "La France"

Modeled 1904; cast 1926
Auguste Rodin, French, 1840 - 1917

Rodin identified this helmeted bust both as a personification of France and, on another occasion, as a depiction of Saint George. As France, it appears in two commemorative monuments: a memorial lighthouse on New York’s Lake Champlain dedicated to the French explorer Samuel de Champlain; and a city hall memorial to the dead of World War I in Riom, France.
