Auguste Rodin 1/undefined by Tripoto

Auguste Rodin

Auguste Rodin was one of the most controversial sculptors of the 19th century. “Rodin’s most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modelled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality.” He had an amazing eye for detail, as well as exceptional talent for bringing out the most realistic forms of his sculptures. He became world-famous by 1900, making him one of the most in-demand sculptors of his time. Not only did he make impressively realistic sculptures, but he also managed to express human emotions with them as well. One of his most well-known masterpieces has to be “The Thinker”. The museum can be visited all year-round, and there is no entrance fee for every first Sunday of every month. If you’re in Paris, I really recommend this lovely little museum, just to take a walk and take your mind off things.
