In 1880, Rodin was commissioned to design the main doors for the new museum of the Decorative Arts. It was agreed that the bronze doors would feature bas reliefs based on Dante’s Divine Comedy. These “Gates of Hell” would be flanked by two life-sized figures: Adam and Eve. Rodin created multiple studies for Eve, but none of these were used to accompany the gates. The model on which the sculpture was based was the Italian Madame Abruzzezzi. She proved to be pregnant when she posed and when this became visible Rodin was furious. From then on he banned his assistants from having intimate relations with the models at his studio.
