"Pénélope" by Antoine Bourdelle is a bronze statue that depicts the mythical heroine of Homer's Odyssey. In the early 1900s, Bourdelle found great inspiration from mythology and the story of Pénélope, the ever faithful wife of Odysseus, who waited ten years for herhusband to return from the Trojan war. The statue is characterized by the flowing lines of her clothing and hair, as well as the sense of serenity and introspection captured in her expression. At the time of its creation, "Pénélope" was widely praised for its innovative style and its powerful depiction of the female form. This statue remains a significant example of Bourdelle's ability to merge classical forms with modern elements, creating works that are both timeless and contemporary. "Pénélope" is a beautiful representation of the grace, strength, and wisdom of women, making it a timeless work of art.
