Auguste Rodin conquered the German art scene through a series of exhibitions in Dresden, Munich, Berlin, Leipzig, Weimar and Dusseldorf. Rodin's art was first purchased by a German museum in 1894. But it wasn't his art alone that fascinated scholars and the public alike. The unique way of presenting the sculptures in combination with Rodin's sketches and fragments provided insight into the artist's process of creation, letting visitors of the exhibition virtually step into the master's atelier. German text.

Influenced by the masters of Antiquity, the genius of Michelangelo and Baroque sculpture, particularly of Bernini, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) is one of the most renowned artists in history. Though Rodin is considered a founder of modern sculpture, he did not set out to critique past classical traditions. Many of his sculptures were criticised and considered controversial because of their sensuality or hyperrealist qualities. His most original works departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, and embraced the human body, celebrating individualism and physicality. This book uncovers the life and career of this highly acclaimed artist by exploring his most famous works of art, such as the Gates of Hell, The Thinker and the infamous The Kiss.

The great master of the human form: The sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain Auguste Rodin was the great master of the human form, in clay, bronze and marble. He hymned Woman, summoning all the passions, joys and vices of life. The poet Rilke wrote that "the sweetness of sin arose from the roots of pain" in Rodin`s figures. They captivate us still, their brilliance undimmed by the passage of time.

The late Albert Elsen was the first American scholar to study seriously the work of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and the person most responsible for a revival of interest in the artist as a modern innovator--after years during which the sculpture had been dismissed as so much Victorian bathos. After a fortuitous meeting with the financier, philanthropist, and art collector B. Gerald Cantor, Elsen helped Cantor build a major collection of Rodin's work. A large part of this collection, consisting of more than two hundred works, was donated to the Stanford University's museum by Mr. Cantor, who died in 1996. In size Stanford's collection is surpassed only by the Musee Rodin in Paris and rivaled only by the collection in Philadelphia. In scope the collection is unique in having been carefully selected to present a balanced view of Rodin's work throughout his life. Rodin's Art encompasses a lifetime's thoughts on Rodin's career, surveying the artist's accomplishments through the detailed discussion of each object in the collection. Its essays on the formation of the collection, the reception of Rodin's work, and his casting techniques are invaluable. The other entries, arranged topically, include extensive discussions of Rodin's major projects.
