The death of the great poet-patriot Victor Hugo (1802-1885) stimulated the French government to transform the Pantheon in Paris into a republican hall of fame. It was to include a monument to Victor Hugo, who had carried the spirit of the French Revolution into the nineteenth century. The artist chosen was the master sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), who valued the commision above all others that he received. The story of the monument's development, which is compellingly told in this thoroughly researched catalogue, is a long and turbulent one, marked by political disagreement, the complex history of the Pantheon, and the drama of Rodin's relationships with his fellow artists and others. The original plaster sketch for the monument was rejected in 1890 by a committee selected to oversee the project, although Rodin was encouraged by the head of the commission to continue working on it. In 1897 Rodin exhibited a rough three-figure plaster group at the Salon, depicting Hugo's powerful figure seated in contemplation with his inspirational Meditation and his Tragic Muse on either side. However, despite the enthusiastic reaction from the public and critics to the work, the government lost interest, and the commission remained unfulfilled.
