Philadelphia – Rodin Museum (The Call to Arms)

I can’t find a list of where all the other castings of Rodin’s The Call to Arms, also known as La Défense and The Call of Arms, are located, but there’s one in Harvard Art Museum, one at Portland Art Museum, one at North Carolina Museum of Art and another at the Musée Rodin in Paris.

Rodin had submitted this in 1879 for a project to create a ‘Monument to the Defence of Paris’. He didn’t win, he wrote later on that the sculpture was probably “too violent and too strident”.
