Auguste Rodin -the Master artist .
I thought of placing these photos of the famous sculpures of Auguste Rodin(1840-1917) as a follow up of the previous post the"Kiss".
These are the photos of the sculpures exhibited at Rodin Musium at Paris.
Rodin based the famous "Thinker" and the sculpure of "The Gates of Hell" on the Dante's "Divine Comedy".
"The Thinker" is well known to most of us. many casts were made of both of these sculptures during and after Rodin's death for he encouraged reproductions of his works. Hence his sculptures are in many collections.
He successfully portrayed human emmotions in his works.
