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.

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 expression 'the Zola of Sculpture' was coined in the circles of the Royal Academy in the 1880s as a term of abuse. Rodin: 'The Zola of Sculpture' reveals how the appraisal of Rodin in British culture was shaped by controversies around the literary models of Zola and Baudelaire, in a period when negative notions about French culture were being progressively transformed into positive expressions of modern sculpture. Embedded within this collaborative book is the editor's proposition that Rodin came to play an important role in the cultural politics of the Entente Cordiale at a critical juncture of European history. Encompassing new scholarship in several disciplines, drawn from both sides of the Channel, Rodin: 'The Zola of Sculpture' offers the first in-depth account of Rodin's career in Britain in the period 1880-1914 and weaves this historical trajectory into a complex investigation of the interactions between French and British cultures. The authors examine the cultural agencies in which conceptions of Rodin's practice played a defining role, dealing in turn with artists' professional associations, art criticism, private and public collectors and the education of women sculptors.

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.

Heir to the precepts of antiquity and Bernini, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was just as influenced by Michelangelo, in particular by his Slaves. And like Michelangelo, Rodin, at the same time as receiving such honours as the Légion d’honneur (amongst others), was embroiled in many scandals and controversies during his career. His sculptures of Victor Hugo and Balzac were censured and The Kiss was deemed too erotic. However, despite racking up female conquests, and having got involved romantically with his student Camille Claudel, Rodin is considered the most important sculptor of the 20th century, representing the female body better than it appears in real life, full of realism and sensuality. “Venus and Eve are too simple words to describe the beauty of woman.” This book reveals Rodin’s life, through the study of his most famous works, such as The Gates of Hell, The Thinker, or The Kiss.
