Auguste Rodin's (?) "Bust of Victor Hugo"

On this Day in the History of Art: Mary Cassatt born (1844), Sir Arthur Conan Doyle born (1859), Victor Hugo died (1885)
I know almost nothing about this wonderful bust of Victor Hugo.

Born-Died: 1840-1977
Media: Marble
Location: Pushkin Museum, Moscow, Russia

  1. I recently listened to a National Gallery of Art lecture on Rodin

    I found two aspects of the lecture interesting:
    (1) how different materials used for the sculptures influenced their ability to communicate, and
    (2) how his reproduction process increased his productivity.
