About Auguste Rodin
Auguste Rodin’s creations provoked conflicted reactions with the audience during his all life. Rodin’s Art lack of understanding was partly due to the unusual character of his work. Fascinated by the body movement more particularly the female body, Rodin focussed his work in capturing the essence of the body in movement. Therefore, he never claimed to belong to any Romanticism or Impressionism movement. Auguste Rodin became well known and had a successful career towards the end of his life. Before he died, he decided to donate his entire works to the French government, which promised, in turn, to found a museum in his name. The Musée Rodin always exists nowadays in Paris. Rodin died in 1917; he was buried with full honors.
The Age of bronze life-sized artwork remains, with the Thinker statue one of Rodin’s best-known creation.
