Museum of Rodin

Auguste Rodin (French, 18401917) brought monumental public sculpture into the modern era. Though he was well acquainted with the academic traditions and idealized subjects of Classical and Renaissance sculpture, Rodin's aim in his work was to be absolutely faithful to nature. His uncanny ability to convey movement and to show the inner feelings of the men and women he portrayed, the bravura of his light-catching modeling, and his extraordinary use of similar figures in different mediums, have established him as one of the greatest sculptors of all time.

He is probably best known for his sclpture The Thinker.
