Auguste Rodin Sculptures & Drawings (Albums)by Gilles Neret
Synopses & Reviews
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.
