ABOUT THE ARTIST:
The Rodin Museum, Paris, 1881 A.D.
Auguste Rodin (1840-1917):
For a long time the life of the sculptor Rodin was marked by the mixed reactions his work provoked with the audience. The lack of understanding for Rodin's work was partly due to the original character of his art. He felt little for the strict formats of Romanticism and neither did he want to identify himself with the neutrality of the Impressionists. Rodin's work is characterized by a passion for the human body and he considered himself incapable of any creativity if he did not have a living model in front of him. "In everything I follow nature and I never pretend I am able to control her. My only ambition is to be subservient and Faithful to her" he said. Questions about his often controversial, erotic works were answered with the remark: "Art is actually nothing more than a manifestation of lust, which only arises from the potency to love."
