Summary

Summary

August Rodin was one of the greatest sculptors of the nineteenth century. During his long and prolific career, he was responsible for breaking away from the conventions of French sculpture with his highly realistic and often erotic approach to the human form. With "the Kiss", "the Thinker", and "the Gates of Hell", along with hundreds of other busts, groups, and entwined figures, he discovered new and powerful effects that could be obtained from marble, bronze, sculpture, and plaster. This book explores over sixty of his finest works in beautiful color reproductions. With a comprehensive introduction and expert commentary on the place of each work within the artist's portfolio as well as in relation to the works of Rodin's contemporaries, RODIN makes an excellent tribute to this eternal master.
-- Over 120 beautiful reproductions of Rodin's best work
-- Expert commentary on the meaning and relevance of Rodin's sculptures
