Auguste Rodin was born on the 12th of November in 1840 in Paris. He is considered one of the greatest French sculptors. At 14 years old, he integrated the Ecole imperiale speciale de dessin et de mathematiques where he learned traditional techniques, drawing and sculpture. He tried several times to join the Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris without any success before working for decorators and craftsmen. In 1860, he made his first sculpture, a bust of his father. In 1877, he prepared his first major piece of art, a life-size statue of a young man. Auguste Rodin died in 1917, this year marks the 100th anniversary of Rodin's passing.

The Thinker is part of the order of the Museum of Applied Arts for the monumental gate based on Dante's Divine Comedy, the Door to Hell. Rodin chose to depict Dante, author of the Divine Comedy leaning forward to observe the circles of Hell and meditating upon his work. While keeping its position within the monumental gate, The Thinker was exhibited individually as of 1888 and therefore became an autonomous piece of art.

A statue of The Thinker stands on Rodin's grave in the Rodin Museum in Meudon.
