About the Statue:
This Thinker on A Rock statue is a lot of fun. While a humanoid hare would be a little odd but comforting. Rabbits put their chins on their hands and their elbows on their knees, as humans often do when they are lost in thought. Its long ears stretch out in all directions, balancing the rabbit’s lanky arms and legs. The rabbit’s eyes seem to be gazing at the viewer, thinking about what it is thinking, and the uncertainty of the viewer. While the depiction is humorous compared to Rodin’s work, Flanagan’s use of the hare form does have its own way of grabbing the viewer’s attention, making them stop and think for a moment.
The original Thinker on A Rock is a bronze sculpture by Barry Flanagan. Brian Ferriso, executive director of the Philbrook Museum of Art, said: “This intriguing theme makes clear references to several art historical traditions, including Rodin. Beyond the subject matter, the work’s Expressiveness also reflects the artist’s unique ability to create three-dimensional ‘gesture’ paintings in bronze.”
Link to Rodin Thinkers:
While the Thinker was made by Rodin around 1880, Welsh sculptor Barry Flanagan carved his own Thinker in rock about a century later, in 1997, inspired by Rodin’s work. Cast in bronze, it’s a hare, not a man, slender and slender in shape, sitting on a rock in the National Gallery’s sculpture garden. The long ears of the hare seemed to extend upward, and the lanky body bent over in thought. This Thinker on A Rock is a humorous interpretation of Rodin’s statue of the Thinker, showing the glamour of thinking in a modern abstraction that is different from traditional art.
