At the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania they had several other nice Auguste Rodin bronze sculptures.  This one is called the Head of Eustache de Saint-Pierre, 1889. This sculpture was also a study for his monumental “Burghers of Calais” a group statue depicting six men of the 14th century Calais who sacrificed their lives to protect the town from massacre.

“The Man with the Broken Nose” originated in the 1860’s as a portrait on an aged Parisian worker but Rodin emphasized the furrowed brows and cheeks and beard and it became a strong resemblance to Michelangelo.

This final bronze statue was a smaller model of the same “Eve” one shown at the Albright-Knox Museum earlier:
