This marble group had this title (Les Nuages) in 1902 when it was still at Rodin's Paris studio and was included in Charles Quentin's article New Work by Auguste Rodin. He commented: 'Les Nuages are represented by two female figures side by side, one kneeling, the other half-seated...The effect of the whole outline is wonderful, giving as it does the idea of changing, drifting clouds'. This work was purchased by Gwendoline Davies in 1913.
