ATTRIBUTED TO AUGUSTE RODIN (1840-1917): LE SUCCUBE
Bronze, c. 1889, inscribed ''Rodin'' on the base. 9 x 6 x 5 in.
Note: Le Succube is a female "demon" conjured in the mind for seduction. Rodin''s use of this subject is a stark contrast to the graceful and idolized depiction of the female form in other works.
