While Rodin is renowned for his images of torment and passionate love, he also devoted attention to tender sentiments such as a sister's devotion to her infant brother.

The squirming baby on the lap of the young woman exemplifies Rodin's fondness for poses that offer dynamic movement and lively views from multiple vantage points.
