The Countess Anna-lisabeth de Noailles (1876-1933) was a French poet. She was the first woman to become a Commander of the Legion of Honor. Various artists of the beginning of the 20th century painted her portrait. in 1906 her image was sculpted by Auguste Rodin. The sculpture can be seen today in the Muse Rodin in Paris.
'Homage to Rodin - Anna de Noailles' by Ina Mar transforms the Rodin sculpture into a decorative motif. The poet's face appears in a realistic form (middle of the picture) but also in an abstract form (left and right frame-like columns, repetitive pattern).
Ina Mar's 'Homage to Rodin' series of composite images uses diverse sculptures or models of sculptures of the Auguste Rodin Museum in Paris, especially L'Eternelle Idole (The Eternal Idol, 1889), Le Penseur (The Thinker, 1880 - 81), the terra cotta model Sommeil (Sleep, 1890-1894) and Anna de Noailles (1906).
