Jean-Charles Cazin (1841–1901)
The Great Windmill and the Rainbow (oil on canvas, 88.9 x 116.8 cm)

Painting Clues:

Auguste Rodin (1840–1917), the world-renowned French sculptor, who counts among his students celebrated artists Antoine Bourdelle and Camille Claudel, created a world-famous group sculpture named The Burghers of Calais, of which there are several copies around the world. Prominent in this group is the statue of Eustache de Saint Pierre, the eldest of the six leading citizens of Calais and the first to volunteer to sacrifice himself to save his city in 1347. Cazin, who claimed to be a descendent of Saint Pierre, was chosen by his good friend Rodin to be the model for Saint Pierre; in particular, to be the model for Saint Pierre’s head.
