Henri Rochefort was a radical journalist, art collector and patron, noted for his remarkably wild hair and equally fierce opinions. The original plaster model was made in about 1884, but this version was carved, perhaps by Rodin’s marble-cutter Henri Lebossé, as late as 1902. It brilliantly captures the fearsome intensity of the subject. The bust was acquired from Rodin by one of his greatest admirers in England, Edward Perry Warren (1860–1928), of Lewes, who also owned the celebrated marble 'The Kiss' (in the Tate collection).
