In 1880 French sculptor Auguste Rodin received the commission for the Gates of Hell, a decorative door for the future Museum of Decorative Arts (Musee des Beaux Arts), to be decorated with low reliefs inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante. Although the Gates of Hell was never completed, some of Rodin's most famous sculptures and memorable pieces were originally done for it including The Thinker, Adam, Eve, and The Kiss. He sculpted them in several sizes and exhibited them extensively.
