Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was of the world’s greatest sculptors. His lush neoclassical style revitalised the sculptural and wider artistic scene.
In 1916, Rodin handed his collection over to the Government, both sculptures and drawings, along with the reproduction rights. The Musée Rodin opened its doors to the public on 4th August 1919.
The Rodin Museum now contains a staggering number of marble, bronze, plaster, wax, and terra cotta sculptures, ceramics, paintings, drawings, and works by other artists (Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh) from his personal collection.
The museum, situated in Hôtel Biron, is a lovely museum, beautiful and constantly surprising. The sculpture is spread pleasantly through the museum and garden so that visitors can explore the hotel whilst discovering great works such as The Kiss and The Thinker.
