Saint John the Baptist (preaching) is a bronze sculpture, by Auguste Rodin.
After the controversy of his Age of Bronze, Rodin began modeling the larger than life figure in 1877. He showed a plaster model at the Salon of 1880.
Reduced size examples were cast between 1878 and 1907. The Walking Man is a version of the figure without the head.
Examples are in the collections of: Musée d'Orsay, Musée du Luxembourg, Musée Rodin, the Tate Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum, California Palace of the Legion of Honor, and the Glenkiln Sculpture Park.
