Product Details


Product Description

Offered here is a spectacular inspired reproduction of Eustache de Saint-Pierre. The bearded man, who was the richest, oldest, and most prominent citizen of the group and the first to volunteer in the Burghers of Calais (Les Bourgeois de Calais). He expresses a sense of dignity despite what appears to be public humiliation and the weight of the whole world on his shoulders. This important sculpture of Rodin is one of the most famous sculptures he created, completed in 1889. It serves as a monument to an occurrence in 1347 during the Hundred Years' War, when Calais, an important French port on the English Channel, was under siege by the English for over a year.
