This definitive monograph from the Musee Rodin in Paris on the pioneering artist who paved the way for modern sculpture is now available in an affordable compact format. Revered today as the greatest sculptor of all time, whose expressive style prefigured that of the modernist movement and abstract sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840 1917) stirred up much controversy during his lifetime, and his sculptures often met with hostility and incomprehension from his peers. This monograph traces the life and work of the artist, from his youth and early poverty-stricken years of apprenticeship to his most celebrated works The Kiss, The Thinker, The Gates of Hell which have become veritable icons; and from his passionate and tumultuous relationship with Camille Claudel to his extraordinary studio, working methods, and sources of inspiration, and his final years marked by war and illness.Written by experts from the Musee Rodin in Paris, this richly illustrated volume includes drawings, watercolors, engravings, and archival documents, as well as specially commissioned photographs of Rodin s sculptures, completed by a chronology, bibliography, and history of the Musee Rodin housed in the artist s former studio in the Hotel Biron. Providing insight into the many facets of his creative genius, this new compact edition of the Musee Rodin s definitive reference on the artist and his oeuvre coincides with museum s reopening in September 2015."
