Auguste Rodin was a sculpture in the mid-19th century. His creations received conflicted reactions from the audience throughout his life due to the unusual character of his work. Rodin was fascinated by body movement centered on the female body and focussed his work on capturing the essence of the body in movement. The artist became well known and had a successful career towards the end of his life. Before he died, he decided to donate his entire work to the French government, which promised, in turn, to found a museum in his name, The Musée Rodin, which always exists nowadays in Paris.
