The Kneeling Man is a work originally conceived in 1888 by the French artist Auguste Rodin for his The Gates of Hell project. The work's arms and torso were reused for The Birth of Venus, a female version - Gates features both the male and female versions in the tympanum and the upper part of the right-hand panel. The same male figure was also used as part of The Maiden Kissed by the Ghost.
