Abstract. The article is devoted to analysing the interrelation of the artistic language of hysteria and Auguste Rodins creative work. The author describes the processes of hysteria actualization in the artistic milieu of France in the second half of the XIX century, considers the formation of the hysteria phenomenon as an artistic language, traces Auguste Rodins relations with the leading neurologists of that period and identifies the borrowed visual images of hysteria in Auguste Rodins sculptures. The study tackles a previously unexplored issue of how medical discoveries of the second half of the XIX century influenced art. Prospects for further studies of interrelations of hysteria and art are outlined.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , , sculpture, Auguste Rodin, artistic representation of hysteria, scientific artworks, social history of art, intertextuality.
