Publisher Comments:

The great master of the human form: The sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain
 
Auguste Rodin was the great master of the human form, in clay, bronze and marble. He hymned Woman, summoning all the passions, joys and vices of life. The poet Rilke wrote that "the sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain" in Rodin`s figures. They captivate us still, their brilliance undimmed by the passage of time.

Synopsis:

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.
