While anchoring his practice in the traditions of antiquity and the Renaissance, Auguste Rodin (1840–1917) paved the way for modern sculpture. From early on, he was interested in movement, the body, chance effects and the incomplete fragment. It was these elements that gave shape and movement to famous works such as The Kissand The Thinker.
An inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists, Rodin’s work incorporated innovation and transgression, but above all, an unrivaled passion for capturing the truth behind forms and the human experience. With rich illustrations and texts, this book invites you to discover this priceless legacy.
